3 arrested in Sumter County home burglary

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Three teenagers charged with a home break-in are in the Sumter County jail.

17-year old Tyrell Jenkins, 18-year old Kadero Austin, and 17-year old Ruhemmeion King are accused of breaking into a house on Henry Hart Road in Leslie Tuesday. The homeowner saw three young men pulling out of his driveway, and deputies arrested the suspects a few miles away.

"Property never left the residence. They had it piled up in a pile getting ready--the television sets--and Mr. Thomas came home in an appropriate time and they ran out the residence," said Sumter County Sheriff Pete Smith.

Bond was set at $10,000 for each of the teens.
