On September 25, BPS responded to a call at 1202 College Street.  The residents reported that three rifles, a laptop and come jewelry had been stolen.  Residents in the area witnessed three black males carrying firearms running down the street. 

On Monday, October 1, BPS responded to a burglary at 1500 Martin Luther King Dr.  Witnesses saw a young black male running from the residence.  Investigators was able to determine that a juvenile had broken into this residence and brought him in for questioning. 

 He confessed to both burglaries and also told officers that Jones and Powell were with him during the burglary on College Street.
