Arrests made in series of Marietta burglaries

Posted: Updated:
MARIETTA, Ga. -

Police made arrested three suspects in a crime spree in a Marietta subdivision. Officers say the trio broke into a number of homes in the Whitlock Heights subdivision over a period of six days.

Authorities have arrested 23-year-old Timothy Lamar Carter, 26-year-old Racheal Coleman and 25-year-old Kevin Cortez Till in the burglaries.

Authorities said there were three break-ins and at least one attempted break in over a six-day period.

Rick Seher's home on Durham Street was one of the three homes burglarized.  Seher came home from a four-day business trip and found that his back door had been kicked in and several valuables stolen.

"It's frustrating and I don't know how else to describe it. Frustrating. You are disappointed," said Seher.

In addition to stealing his TVs and other items, the burglars also cleaned out his pantry.

"They took food items off of the shelf. Literally. I don't know how else to explain it. There was nothing left," said Seher.

According to warrants obtained by FOX 5, the three are accused of stealing everything from flat screen TVs and computers to jewelry boxes and a ukulele.  Authorities were able to recover some of the stolen items. Some of the stolen items came from a burglary in another jurisdiction, so police are looking to see if the three are connected to other crimes.

The three suspects are charged with three counts of burglary among other charges.
