THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

More charges are added against a suspected serial burglar who remains in jail.

18-year old Tyrone Woodson is now charged with a November burglary at a house on Town Court in Thomasville.

Woodson has been in the Colquitt County Jail since December, accused of breaking into several Colquitt County homes.

Investigators say Woodson could be connected to other unsolved crimes.

"Anytime we can make an arrest for a burglary or any type of crime, it makes us feel good to be able to get that criminal off the street. Perhaps he or she has been some of the ones committing other crimes. So it makes us feels good and I'm sure it makes the other citizens in the community feel better when we are able to arrest someone," said Lt. Eric Hampton.

Investigators say Woodson stole guns, televisions, computers, and other valuable items from these homes.
