Valdosta police arrest two, solve six crimes

August 16, 2007

Valdosta - Police in Valdosta arrested a man they say broke into five convenience stores and gas stations by knocking out windows.

They arrested 43-year old Tracey York Thursday morning near a Shell gas station.

Police found several packs of cigarettes they say he stole from the store.

They say he's responsible for four other similar break-ins over the past two weeks.

Police say this arrest is just the beginning of a crackdown on commercial burglaries in the area.  "We are going to continue our burglary patrol, we are going to continue looking for people who are involved in these things and arrest them," says Commander Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police.

They also arrested 18-year-old Christopher Mixer Wednesday.  They say he was caught on camera breaking into a convenience store.

Both men are charged with burglary.
