One man is in custody and two other suspects are still being sought by police in what is being called a string of burglaries in the BridgeMill and Sixes area.

Savon Jones, 21, of Atlanta, turned himself in to police Friday and is charged on one count of residential burglary, said Lt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office.

Jones remains in custody in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center with a $13,400 bond, Baker said.

The arrest follows an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office into a slew of burglary incidents in the BridgeMill and Sixes area that took place between Aug. 3 and 7, he said.

Baker said the recent rash of burglaries included four commercial and two residential burglaries.

“The commercial burglaries included a Subway restaurant and three gas stations,” Baker said. “In all four incidents, a cement block or rock was thrown through the front glass doors while the businesses were closed and drawers from the cash registers were taken.”

The residential burglaries both took place in the BridgeMill subdivision, Baker said.

“A 50-inch television was taken from one residence and nothing was reported stolen from the second residence,” he said.

Jones has been charged with one count of burglary in connection with the stolen TV, Baker said.

Baker said Jones is also a suspect in the commercial burglaries, but has not been charged.

“There were at least two suspects involved in the commercial burglaries,” Baker said. “If anyone has any information about these incidents, they are urged to contact detectives.”

Anyone with information on the burglaries can contact detectives at (770) 928-0239.

Baker said the incidents remain under investigation, adding “more arrests are possible.”
