East Cobb Burglary Suspect Arrested
Harold Weems is accused of using a trail behind his mother's house to break into four East Cobb homes on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22. Arrest warrants have been issued for two other suspects.
Authorities have arrested one of three men wanted in connection with four East Cobb home burglaries.
Harold Weems of Rex was arrested Tuesday in Clayton County, just days after arrest warrants were issued Friday for him, Tony Wesley Neal of Stone Mountain and Tyrone D. Weems of East Cobb.
In Cobb County criminal warrants, authorities accuse the trio of breaking into homes on Feb. 21 and 22, and taking off with jewelry, electronics and other goods. Three of the burglaries occurred on the same night within a span of one hour.
The suspects allegedly gained access to the homes on Weymouth Drive, Stillbrook Pass and Hembree Trace Drive by using a trail behind their mother's house, records show. They are accused of breaking a rear window lock to enter one residence and forcing open windows at two other homes. In another case, entry was no problem. The door was unlocked.
The suspects each face four counts of burglary in the first degree. Harold Weems is being held in the Cobb County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond. The warrants for Neal and Tyrone D. Weems remain active.
Last month, the Cobb County Police Department announced the arrest of four suspects from across metro Atlanta in connection with a series of nighttime residential burglaries that occurred in mid-January. There is no connection between those incidents and the most recent burglaries, said Officer Mike Bowman, spokesman for the agency.
