Four Arrested In Brunswick For Breaking Into Unlocked Cars

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The Glynn County Police Department has arrested four people after receiving reports that they were walking around an apartment complex parking lot looking for unlocked vehicles.

Shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, police were alerted to people walking around the parking lot of the Fox Run Apartment Complex located at 100 Walden Shores Drive in Brunswick, according to a news release from Captain Marissa Tindale with the Glynn County Police Department.

Tindale said a resident called 911 to report a "suspicous" white Cutlass that several people had gotten out of and were checking for unlocked vehicles in the parking lot of the complex.

A little bit after 1:30 a.m., police officers stopped the car near the apartments.

As a result of the traffic stop, four people were arrested.  Those people have been identified as 18-year-old Jerrell Thomas, 20-year-old Alfreda Bullard, 19-year-old Maliek Plamer and an unidentified 16-year-old.  All four are from Brunswick.

In addition to the cars being burglarized at the apartment complex, the Glynn Police Department also received reports of four other vehicles that were broken into, Tindale said.

A car was broken into at the Outback Steakhouse on St. Simons Island.  The stolen items were a $150 purse and $1,500 laptop.  Both of those items have been recovered.

At approximately 3:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, a car was broken into at 500 Mall Blvd. The items taken were a book bag, sleeping bag and flashlight. The sleeping bag and book bag were both recovered.

At 4 a.m., a car was burglarized at the same address on Mall Boulevard. This car was unlocked and suspects stole a camera, cell phone, cash, checks and other miscellaneous items. Tindale said several of these items have also been recovered.

The last report of theft from a vehicle happened at 6:42 a.m. when another car was broken into at 500 Mall Blvd. Tindale said there was no information as to the items taken at this time.

The Glynn County Police Department is still actively investigating the string of vehicle break-ins.

If you know any information, or believe you have been a victim, you are asked to call Investigator Bill Tomlinson at (912) 554-7817.
