Grady County-- Five suspects are in jail in Grady and Decatur Counties.   Grady County investigators arrested 20-year-old Ricky Warren, 18-year-old Shontavious Herring, and a 15-year old juvenile.

They say the men stole firearms from homes in the southern part of the county and are likely responsible for a similar string of burglaries that happened around this time last year in the same area.

Authorities also believe these men are part of a group responsible for burglaries throughout southwest Georgia in the last year.  Grady County Sheriff Harry Young says, "They're all connected. I think most of them are kin to each other. They work together. Each one of them, all good friends, all live in the same area."

Investigators suspect Shawn Herring and Michael Collier are part of that group. With the help of U.S. Marshals, Decatur County investigators arrested them Wednesday morning in Tallahassee. They're charged with the theft of trailers, 4-wheelers, lawn mowers, and other items from Thomas, Grady, and Decatur counties.
