Sheriff’s officers arrested a Sulphur Springs teen in connection with the burglary and vandalism of a County Road 3504 shop building Sunday night.

Investigators were talking to two others in relation to the burglary, and said depending on the outcome of the ongoing investigation, more arrests could be imminent.

Christopher Scott McCullough, 17, of Sulphur Springs was arrested at 4:30 p.m. Monday after admitting to investigators his involvement in the burglary, according to sheriff’s reports. He remained in the county jail in lieu of $10,000 bond each on felony charges of burglary of a building and criminal mischief.

Police were contacted at 4:30 p.m. Monday by a self-employed air conditioning worker, who alleged air compressors and equipment were stolen from his CR 3504 shop after 10 p.m. Sunday. The shop also sustained several thousands of dollars worth of damage from vandalism as well, according to Hopkins County Chief Sheriff’s Investigator Toney Hurley.

The investigator led officers to a scrap yard on FM 1870. A receipt led investigators to County Road 3506, where McCullough was located. Several items of stolen property were also recovered. McCullough was questioned and admitted to the building burglary. He was arrested on both charges, according to arrest reports.

The investigation is ongoing, and officers indicated a juvenile and another adult were sought for questioning related to the criminal mischief and burglary.
