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.

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.
