CATAWBA COUNTY, Ga. — Two police officers in Catawba County were injured early Wednesday morning, one seriously, when they fell through a roof.

The Longview officers were looking into what they thought was a break-in just after 4 a.m. at E.L. Hilts & Co., a roofing equipment and tools company. They had noticed an unlocked gate and a ladder leading to the roof, said Longview Police Chief Cecil Rogers.
