A news release says police were called early Thursday morning and found about five-thousand dollars worth of damage to Luttrell Jewelers, plus thousands in merchandise gone. Police this week arrested Rocky Morse, 18, of Chatham, along with a 17-year-old from Chatham and 16-year-old from Springfield.

They’ve all been charged with burglary and theft over $300 – the 17 year old was also charged with marijuana posession.
