2 nabbed for 3 PTC auto break-ins
Two people were arrested Friday after breaking into three cars at the parking lots of two different Peachtree City restaurants, police said.
The first incident happened at Outback where the thieves smashed a vehicle window and stole an iPhone, an iPad, a viola, a cheerleading bag, a jacket and a purse.
Within half an hour of the incident being reported to police, the suspects were found in the parking lot of the Star Lite Skating Rink in Newnan where they were arrested, police said.
They were identified as William Pearson, 34, of Tregoney Drive, Decatur and Alice Blackwell, 26, of Sunset Avenue, Atlanta. Both were charged with three counts of criminal trespassing and three counts of entering an auto. Pearson was also charged with driving on a suspended license.
A search warrant of Pearson’s auto led to recovery of stolen items linked to two other auto break-ins discovered at the Longhorn restaurant in Peachtree City, police said.
