Holmes County is located in the Panhandle region of Florida, north of Panama City. The county is bordered by the state of Alabama to the north, the Choctawhatchee River to the west, and Holmes Creek to the east. The origin of the name is unclear; some believe it was named for a half-breed Creek Indian chief who lived in the area around 1815, but others maintain that the county is the namesake of Thomas J. Holmes, a settler who moved to the area from North Carolina about 1830. The county was established in 1848. The population was 19,927 as of the 2010 census. There have been four different county seats: Hewitt’s Bluff, Pittman’s Ferry, Westville, and finally Bonifay since 1905.

BONIFAY, Fla. - Two Bonifay juveniles are facing charges following a joint investigation by Holmes County Sheriff’s Office and Bonifay Police Department.

Holmes County Sheriff’s Office made contact with the Bonifay Police Department during the course of investigating a missing juvenile earlier this week. The BPD officer advised that the missing juvenile, along with a 14-year-old female juvenile, were believed to have broken into Holmes County High School earlier that same morning.

Interviews with the teens reveled that they were responsible for several other burglaries in the city and county.

The teens are charged with several counts of burglary and criminal mischief by both Bonifay Police Department and Holmes County Sheriff’s Office.

More individuals are also believed to have been involved with some of the burglaries, and charges against additional subjects are forthcoming.

Holmes County Sheriff John Tate says he appreciates the investigative partnership with the Bonifay Police Department that led to the solving of the burglaries.

“This is a fluid example of two agencies working together to solve crimes in both jurisdictions,” said Sheriff Tate. “I would like to thank the Bonifay Police Department for their efforts and assistance.”

Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells agrees the joint effort illustrates two agencies working toward the mutual goal of serving the community.

“The Bonifay Police Department is glad to have worked with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office in this investigation, and we are also glad to have solved these break-ins for our citizens."
