Alpharetta Police Arrest Two Men in Multiple Burglaries
A neighbor's call about a suspicious vehicle was the big break in the case.
Two men from Alpharetta and Roswell have been arrested as suspects in six burglaries in different cities over the past few months, according George Gordon, spokesman for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.
On Dec. 19, detectives took into custody Thomas E. Williams III, 18, from Roswell. He is being held in Fulton County Jail on seven burglary charges. The second suspect, Jaiquan Sean Lynch, 17, of Alpharetta was taken into custody on the following day, and is in jail on six burglary charges. Both men are being held in lieu of $85,000 bond.
A call from a city resident was the big break in the case.
“A major break in this case occurred when a concerned citizen called police regarding a suspicious vehicle in her neighborhood,” said Gary George, director of the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.
The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety’s Criminal Investigative Division conducted the intensive investigation which ultimately resulted in the arrest of these suspects.
“These arrests are the result of excellent investigative work by our detectives,” George said.
Alpharetta police have charged the men on six cases of residential burglary. Gordon said investigators have received full confessions from the two men regarding their involvement in these crimes.
Detectives stated that once the investigation is completed and the case closed, victims will be notified of any recovered property.
