Burglar nabbed...

On February 24, 2011 at approximately 4:45 AM, residents of 305 Pinemount Drive, Peachtree City, Ga were woken to unusual noises coming from their basement. The resident told Communications Officers that when the light was turned on in the bedroom, the noises in the basement stopped.

Officers responded to the home in just under 2 minutes from the time the call was dispatched. The home was cleared to ensure that no subjects were located in the residence and the homeowners were safe. A perimeter around the area was established, and an on-duty Fayette County Sheriff’s Office K9 Officer responded to the location to assist in tracking the offender.

While searching the area, Officers located a subject who was standing on Pinemount Drive. JONES, MARLON D., 22, of Yates Rd., College Park, Ga., was taken into custody and questioned. JONES admitted to entering the home, which he believed to be vacant. While in the home, he took an X-Box, a computer, a laser pointer, and liquor. With the exception of the laser pointer that was in JONES’ possession, all stolen items were located under a tree by Officers who were searching the area.

JONES is currently located at the Fayette County Jail. Warrants for JONES are currently pending for LOITERING AND PROWLING AND BURGLARY.
