The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office is charging an 18-year-old man who one count of burglary. If convicted, Brandon White could face up to eight years in prison and a 15 thousand dollar fine.

Sheriff Dave Phalen says a suspicious car was seen leaving a Busey Road home in Pickerington last Friday and the woman found her home had been burglarized. He says a deputy later spotted the car and made a traffic stop, where she discovered the stolen electronic equipment and jewelry in the trunk. The deputy also found some drug paraphernalia in the car.

The sheriff’s office is expected to file charges against a 17-year-old accomplice in the near future.
