BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Information from Bainbridge Public Safety

Bainbridge Public Safety has arrested four people in connection with two recent burglaries, one involving stolen guns. 

Aaron Jones (17) and a juvenile were arrest on Monday, October 1 and charged with burglary. 

Octavious Powell (18) and Charles Freeman (35) were both arrested on Tuesday, October 2. 

Powell was charged with burglary while Freeman was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property.

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.

Investigators learned that the three had left the residence on College Street and gone to Freeman's home, where they gave Freeman the stolen guns and he later sold them.  BPS has since recovered the firearms, as well as the laptop that was stolen from the residence on College Street. 

The Decatur County Sheriff's Office assisted with these investigations.
