A 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were arrested late Tuesday on
multiple felony charges. Police are continuing their search for the
third suspect in the April 30 robbery at the high school.

    One of the worst nights of my life, I spent in Bartow, Florida. Were these computers going to be sold? Makes you wonder what was going through their brains? Just stupid I suppose...

      It is not Bartow's fault what these creeps did. I hope they throw the book at them. THey deserve to serve some SERIOUS jail time. They are nothing but punks.
