Two teens were charged with burglary in the theft of more than $400 in candy from a high school concession stand.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, a 16-year-old Butler High School student and Deryk White, 18, a student at Glenn Hills, were apprehended shortly after breaking into the concession stand at Butler and stealing 20 boxes of candy and 24 bottles of Coca-Cola about 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Sgt. Paul Godden said deputies had received a tip from someone who witnessed the crime, allowing them to quickly apprehend the suspects.

“It was great they called police,” he said. “If you see something, say something.”

Godden said investigators are looking for a few more people involved in the burglary.
