Home invaders may be connected to other crimes

June 3, 2008

Valdosta - Police still have not charged suspects in a home invasion and extortion plot in Valdosta.  But they think they men may be responsible for other violent crimes.

Valdosta Police took three suspects into custody yesterday.

They think the men forced their way into the apartment of 23 year-old Jason Pere and 22 year-old Laura Mason off Northside Drive.

Pere was held at the apartment while Mason was bound with duct tape and driven to a bank. One of the men let her go, and she called police.

Investigator say this may not be their first crime. 

"We are still questioning and we may have some other crimes that we are possibly looking at these individuals may have been involved in," says Commander Eugene Bell of the Valdosta Police.

They hope to have charges filed by the end of the week.
