ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police report they have busted a major burglary ring, charging six men with 30 home burglaries across the city in the past three months.

28 year old Joseph Grice, Jr., 18 year old Octavius Johnson, 18 year old Anthony Williams, Jr., 18 year old Akeem Jackson, 20 year old Jerro Toye, and 21 year old Dontavious Frazier are all charged with multiple counts of burglary.  They are still looking for 24 year old Demario Frazier, wanted for being involved as well.

 Most of those burglaries were commited in East Albany, in the Moultrie Road area near Mobile Avenue and Vandeman Street area.  Investigators say this was a very organized ring.

Detective Terrance Bryant said "All of the burglaries that occured in these arrests have mainly been forced entry through a rear door or rear window. They have organized not only in that area, but all across the city of Albany."

Police say they have been staking out the area, got tips from neighbors, and traced stolen items in pawn shops back to these burglars. Police say this burglary ring is responsible for tens of thousands of dollars of stolen goods, mostly electronics, jewelry, and money.
