Police have arrested two more suspects who are alleged to have fled from deputies last Thursday morning after stealing a large amount of copper wiring from a Cobb EMC power station in Acworth.
Erik Davies, 38, and Sean Demore, 20, both of Gainesville, were arrested Thursday night. Daniel Richard Demore, 38, of Gainesville, was arrested following the theft Thursday morning, said Lt. Jay Baker, spokesman for the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were called to the Cobb EMC power station on Woodstock Road about 5 a.m. Thursday, and found Davies and Daniel Richard Demore, who had loaded a large amount of copper wiring after cutting it out of the power station, Baker said.
The suspects fled from the scene on foot, but deputies were able to catch Daniel Richard Demore, Baker said.
Originally, deputies believed only Davies was at large but later determined that Sean Demore, who is Daniel Richard Demore’s nephew, was also at the scene and fled, Baker said.
Baker said the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office secured warrants for the two remaining suspects Thursday and each were arrested by neighboring law enforcement agencies.
Sean Demore was arrested in Acworth by the Acworth Police Department, and Davies was arrested in Forsyth County by the Forsyth Sheriff’s Office, Baker said.
“Cherokee Sheriff’s Office detectives have been working with detectives in Bartow County and believe the trio is possibly responsible for copper thefts in that jurisdiction also,” Baker said.
All three suspects are charged with commercial burglary, criminal damage to property in the second degree and obstruction, Baker said.
Baker said the three men are being held at the Cherokee County Adult Detention center on $33,400 bond each.
