April 4, 2006

Albany - Albany police have made five arrests in recent burglaries, and more arrests are on the way. 19 year old Turrundavie Williams was arrested Monday. Police caught him trying to break into Dixon's Wigs and Beauty Supply on West Broad Avenue, after the business's alarm went off. Police are also questioning Williams for a couple other recent business burglaries.

25 year old William Crider was also arrested for stealing copper wire from air conditioning units at Liberty Parkway Church of God on Schley Avenue. The preacher caught Crider.

"I had seen the newscast concerning that copper was being stolen out of air conditioners. The man gave what sounded like a false story, so I took down his tag number. From there, I called the law," said Pastor H.W. Rutledge.

Police are also searching for Donteia Williams. He's wanted for at least five home burglaries. Police found nearly $3,000 in stolen TV's and electronics at Williams's Mitchell Avenue home. Police arrested 24 year old Yashica Ford in connection with those burglaries.

Police arrested 17 year old Desmond Daniels and 26 year old Robert Johnson after finding two pistols and a machine gun in their car. Police pulled over the men on Franklin Street. They were driving a car used in a check forgery scam. The two face various firearms and traffic charges.
