Two men were arrested on charges of burglary of the Creek Stop Grocery Store in Wewahitchka.

Early Wednesday morning employees at the Creek Stop arrived for work and found the front door glass had been broken out. Deputies arrived on the scene and found a large amount of blood on the ground. Several minutes later the local hospital called and reported a young man with a severe cut to his arm. Deputies responded to the hospital and Codie Letchworth, 19, confessed to breaking into the store. He has been arrested for burglary; the case is still under investigation and several more arrests are expected.

Westley Mayo,18, was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he was developed as a suspect in the early morning burglary of the Creek Stop. Letchworth named Mayo as an accomplice. Mayo is currently out on bond on several other burglary charges.
