VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Deputies in Lowndes County say they busted a four-county theft ring.

They arrested 24-year-old Terry Bowles, Junior, 25-year-old Angel Kelley, and two 16-year-old boys.

Investigators say they're responsible for up to a dozen store, home and church burglaries in Lowndes, Echols and Brooks Counties and Hamilton County, Florida.

They say the mother of Bowles and one of the teens turned them in when she noticed merchandise around the house and in a shed.

Investigators found knives, Crossbows, air pellet rifles and ninja stars.

They say this group also stole magnets, canned food and keys. 

"Out of the church they stole check book stubs. Out of another they stole a bag of keys so its not what we commonly get as far as burglaries," says Detective Jack Priddy.

The two teens turn 17 this month. Investigators say they may be charged as adults.

They all face burglary or conspiracy to commit burglary charges. 

More charges could be filed.
