Arrest made in Newnan Pines auto break-ins
by Wes Mayer
An arrest has been made in the investigation of a large number of entering auto and burglary incidents that have plagued the Newnan Pines golf community and other neighborhoods north of Newnan since late last year.
More arrests are soon to follow, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office. The one suspect who has been arrested recently turned 17, Yarbrough said, and some of the crimes are believed to have occurred since the suspect’s birthday.
The other suspects are all juveniles and their cases will most likely be handled in juvenile court, he said. The suspects will each be charged with 43 counts of entering autos and seven counts of burglary, Yarbrough said.
The crimes all occurred in the areas in and around the Newnan Pines neighborhood, Country Club Road, Old Atlanta Highway and Hal Jones Road.
Yarbrough expects the remaining suspects to be in custody by the end of the week.
