Thomasville- Three southwest Georgia men are in jail after flagging down a deputy for a ride when their stolen car got stuck. They could be connected to a rash of car break-ins.

A Thomas County deputy saw 20-year-old Triston McClain, 21-year-old John Wesley Baynard and 26-year-old Joshua French walking on Highway 19 around 2:30 Sunday morning.

They needed a ride, and they got one-- to jail. All three are charged with theft by taking and theft by receiving a motor vehicle.

Mclain was charged with two counts entering auto after deputies found stolen firearms in the car.

Thomas County and Thomasville have had more than 90 car break-ins in the past six weeks.
