Officials Say Children Caught Burglarizing Residence

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department said a 12-year-old and 7-year-old were caught in the act of burglary Tuesday.

Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun said deputies responded to a report about noon from a witness who saw someone entering the window of a mobile home on Valley Road.

Calhoun said the case against the 12-year-old will be handled by the youth court system.

Calhoun said the 7-year-old is too young for youth court, but the Mississippi Department of Human Services was notified.
