 Two people have been arrested in conjunction with a burglary that occurred at Pesso’s Pawn Shop April 12.

Raymond E. Godwin, 42, and Kimberly S. Soverins, 30, both of Williston were charged Wednesday with the crime, according to Police Chief Dennis Strow.

In a press release, Strow reported that during the burglary, several items were taken, including two long guns. The guns were located by employees of Williston High School on the school campus.

During the investigation numerous fingerprints were recovered by the investigating officers. Wednesday, Sgt. James Bond received communications from the fingerprint examiner that a positive identification of the prints had been made, which identified the perpetrators.

Thursday, both suspects were contacted, and during the interview both confessed to the crime.

Godwin was charged with armed burglary, grand theft, dealing  in stolen property and possession of a firearm on school property.

Soverins was charged with four counts dealing in stolen property.

Both people will be transported to the Levy County Detention Center following processing at the Williston Police Department.
