Warrants were served on Jeffries Tuesday charging him with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny after breaking and entering.

Warrants say Jeffries broke into a home on Lenoir Street and stole several items, including an elk tooth locket, bottle of brandy Bacardi, jewelry, and an iPad2 with a broken screen.

Jeffries stole the items over several days in mid-January, warrants say.


The items are estimated to be worth a total of around $2,000.

He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday in connection with the breaking and entering charges.

Jeffries is a freshman at Athens Drive High School. According to court documents, he was already on probation after a breaking and entering conviction and is also charged with possessing a half-ounce or less of marijuana.

Jeffries is being held on a $1.5 million bond in connection with the sexual offense charges.
