Mitchell County --  A second suspect is arrested in connection with a burglary ring that hit at least five convenience stores in four counties.   Stephen Baird is charged only with the attempted burglary at Bob's County Store in Mitchell County.

Investigators say he was in the car driven by his brother Jason when they fled the store, led police on a chase into Dougherty County, and crashed on Antioch Road.

Investigators are still searching for Jason Baird. His girlfriend Amanda Brooks was arrested and charged with filing a false police report for reporting her car stolen after she knew it was involved in the chase.
