The Griffin Police Department arrested three teens Tuesday in connection with two burglaries that were committed at Liberty Technology over the weekend.

Those arrested Tuesday were Joseph Love, 17, of 806 Pamela Drive, Ke’onta Deon Glass, 17, of 328 North 2nd St., and a male juvenile, all from Griffin, who have been each charged with one count of burglary. Police said there may be additional charges pending further investigation.

The 17-year-olds are considered adults and are being held at the Spalding County Detention Center. Police said the juvenile was not detained and was released to a legal guardian. Bond had not be set for Love or Glass as of Wednesday afternoon, according to the Detention Center.

Police responded to the alarm for the first burglary about 4:19 a.m., Saturday to the store at 120 East Taylor St. Store surveillance reportedly shows two male suspects entering and leaving the store through the broken window and broken glass and pieces of brick were reportedly found both inside and outside the window.

The second incident was reported on Monday morning. During both incidents several electronic items such as iPads and laptop computers were stolen.

The scene was processed by Griffin Police Department crime scene investigators at which time they were able to develop leads that ultimately lead them to two of the suspects.

During the investigation that was led by Sgt. Sommer Bales and Investigator Chip Johns with the assistance of several other members of the Criminal Investigations Division, officers were able to recover some of the stolen items and identify a third suspect who was later picked up and interviewed by investigators.

As result of the investigation, Love and the juvenile were charged with the burglary committed on Saturday, Feb. 15. All three were charged with the second burglary committed on Monday, Feb. 17.
