A Newnan man has been charged with three Peachtree City residential burglaries that occurred over the summer.

Alan B. Bridges, Jr., 17, was charged with three counts of burglary, according to arrest records.

A July 8 burglary occurred at a Wynnmeade Parkway residence where entry was made after a rock was thrown through a glass door. A computer and jewelry were stolen, according to reports.

A July 26 burglary occurred at a residence on Meadow Court. Reports did not indicate a method of entry or what items were stolen.

The third charge was related to a burglary earlier in the summer also on Meadow Court, though the only damage to the home was to the garage door, reports said.
