Suwannee County, Florida - May 15, 2012 -

A local teen is behind bars for shooting arrows at a caged animal and grand theft.

Suwannee County Sheriff Deputies arrested 18-year-old Brandon Partin May 3 after he was found with property from recent burglaries.

Officials say Partin admitted he and a juvenile robbed one residence of items costing more than $1,000. He also caused in excess more than $1,000 damage in the home. That includes damaging the rear door, windows, television screens, family pictures and chopped up a couch with a machete found in the home.

According to officials, the suspects then robbed a second home of items costing more than $1,000. Inside the house, Partin armed himself with a .22 caliber rifle. He then found another weapon - bow and arrows - shooting at least two arrows at a family dog secured inside a crate.

The dog was secure in the crate and not injured.

Partin was taken to the Suwannee County Jail. He faces charges of two counts of burglary while armed, two counts of grand theft, two counts of felony criminal mischief and a misdemeanor charge of cruelty to an animal.

    Here's an idea - as part of his punishment, let's put him in a cage (jail cell) and shoot arrows at him. I still believe in an eye for an eye. What a coward to shoot (arrows, bullets, etc) at a poor helpless animal confined in a cage. What a real gem he is. Typical bully to pick on someone or something that can't fight back.

      Please read the latest article regarding Zimmerman, truth. He had two black eyes, a fractured nose, and lacerations to the back of his head. Maybe he was telling the truth? Of course we don't know the full story yet and I'll be interested in how the trial goes but let's not rush to judgment or compare it at all to this monster. I agree with HMA that this boy/guy needs to be watched closely. Typical signs of a sociopath...

    Deputies should keep a big coil of rope in their trunks, as well as height/weight/distance "drop" chart. With enough slack for a decent fall, these miscreant's necks would snap like a twig. A painless attitude adjustment complete. Collect your rope, put it back in the trunk, return to patrol.

    This useless slime-puddle should be locked in a cage and undergo an arrow-shower. Too bad the criminal justice system has no backbone.
