COLQUITT COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Investigators say when Greg Lane came back to his Silverwood Court home Monday, he discovered six of his guns were missing.

But as he was calling the police, he noticed the three suspects driving away in a dark green Mercury.

Investigators say Lane began pursuing the suspects down 319 towards Coolidge.

"The victim positively identified the vehicle involved that he was trying to pursue and he identified the weapons that were recovered," said Sergeant Mike Gaines.

Lane lost sight of the suspects near Coolidge, but the Georgia State Patrol and Thomas County Sheriff's Office were waiting for them.

Investigators say the suspects were stopped in the 17000 block of 319 between Thomasville and Coolidge.

"I think from the time we received the information to the time we actually captured the suspects, I think it took maybe 16 to 18 minutes," said Gaines.

The driver of the vehicle, 18-year old Kameron McCloud was charged with DUI by the Georgia State Patrol.

"During the course of the search of the vehicle we located the weapons that were stolen," said Gaines.

All three suspects were taken into custody at gunpoint and brought to the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say they expect all three suspects to be charged in this case, they will not release the other two names until the official charges have been filed.
