NEWTON, GA (WALB) -

With information from the Baker County Sheriff's Office-

Three Dougherty County men, who are already behind bars for similar crimes are now facing additional burglary charges in Baker County.

Investigators say 20-year-old Albert Wilson, who is in the Dougherty County jail, confessed to breaking the front windows of the BVM convenience store and the Petro gas station in Newton two weeks ago.

24-year-old Maurice Sanders and 25-year-old Curtis Broner, who are also in the Dougherty County jail are being charged with this burglary. 

The three suspects caused $2,000 in damage and made off with ten boxes of Newport cigarettes and two boxes of cigars.

Investigators say they will eventually be transferred to Baker County.  Authorities believe the men are linked to other crimes in South Georgia.
