Two adults and two juveniles have been charged with stealing from a storm-damaged business in Bradley County, according to a news release.

The sheriff's office release says Tennessee Wildlife Resources officers patrolling an area on Dalton Pike where a small store was demolished found three people preparing to move beer and other beverages stacked at the rear of the building.

After further investigation, Bradley deputies found a backpack-type sprayer from the store at the home of Larry Dean Gibson Jr., 22, the release stated.

Gibson, of Blythe Avenue, has been charged with theft under $500, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and an earlier warrant for misdemeanor probation violation.

Dustin M. Lemons, 23, of Central Street NW, has been charged with theft under $500, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and public intoxication.

The juveniles, both 17, were taken to the county juvenile detention unit.

The release states that, under state law, judges may double penalties during declared emergencies.
