Two arrested, two sought for string of burglaries

by Wes Mayer

Last week, authorities with the Grantville Police Department arrested two men suspected of being responsible for multiple burglaries in the city — and two more suspects are being sought.

Lt. Scott Willson with the police department has been investigating a number of Grantville burglaries over the past several months, said Grantville Police Chief Doug Jordan, and, so far, two suspects have been arrested.

On Feb. 19, Casey Lamar Parks, 26, was arrested and charged with burglary in the first degree and criminal damage to property in the second degree for a burglary on the 100-block of Carey Court, Jordan said. Three separate warrants were issued for the arrest of Parks for three other burglaries — one on the 100-block of Meriwether Street on Nov. 7, one on the 100-block of Greenfield Lane, and one on the 100-block of Colley Street on Nov. 8.

Warrants were also issued for the arrest of Marcus Miquel Buckhanna, 37, believed to be involved in the Colley Street burglary, Jordan said. Both suspects were transported to the Coweta County Jail.

According to Jordan, warrants have been issued for the arrest of two other suspects, Nicholas Leon Hill and Y-Kim Amenra Young. Both are charged with two counts of theft by taking and two counts of criminal damage to property in the second degree for air conditioner thefts that occurred on the 100-block of St. Charles Place in November.

Hill and Young are both wanted by the Grantville Police Department and anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Lt. Wilson at 770-583-2266.
