Buchanan – A 24-year old disadvantage youth identified as Emmanuel Davis has been arrested and detained for allegedly burglarizing graves at the Sugarcane Farm Cemetery in Buchanan.

“ I been breaking graves for sometime now to get the steel rod and other items and sell them just to get food “.
He furthered “ I am pleading with the police to forgive me because I have decided to stop breaking down graves as of today’s date “.
It is unclear as to whether the alleged criminal has been set free but in-house sources lately inform our reporter that Davis was set free due to his commitment to build the damaged graves .
