23 arrests clear 18 burglary cases

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Almost two dozen people are in jail accused of being part of three different burglary rings that targeted Albany homes.

Investigators showed us some of the stolen items, laptops, game systems, and even a 60-inch TV.

They recovered nearly $20,000 worth of items and arrested 23 people. Ten of the suspects are minors.

Police say the arrests cleared 18 burglary cases, and they're still looking for other suspects. They hope the arrests will mean fewer burglaries, at least for now.

"We've had sporadic burglaries ranging from the east side to the west side of Albany. We got a break when several Juveniles were arrested in the Georgetown Landings area," said Det. Terrance Bryant, Albany Police Department.

Most of the victims already got their stolen items back. If you think some of this stuff could be yours, call Albany Police.

They say help from the public led to the arrests.

Here is the list of the adults that were arrested:

  1. Rodney Bernard Taylor (17)
  2. Michael Deangelowes Sindy (17)
  3. Maurice Ay' Kie Barney (17)
  4. Jowaskee Antwan Pemberton (29)
  5. Gregory Dontavious Noird (17)
  6. Keon Montrez Harris (18)
  7. Printiss Donaldson (21)
  8. Aleah Maleeka Fonsworth (28)
  9. Dessere Ashley Gray (23)
  10. Kwame Supreme Darby (19)
  11. Tavaris Dominique Maddox (22)
  12. Torrance Roshaun Prince (25)
  13. Marquis Laron Robinson (17)
  14. Tonya L. Sorrow (27)
