The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said they were called to the house after a neighbor spotted the two young men trying to break in. When officers arrived, the two tried to run but were quickly taken into custody.
18-year-old Jarrell Bankston was taken to Cherokee County Jail where he is being held on a $21,449 bond, and his 16-year-old accomplice was taken to a Regional Youth Detention Center in Marietta.
