An Alabama man and a Georgia woman are facing even more charges in connection with a string of burglaries that stretched across three states. Investigators believe the two may have been the culprits in burglaries that happened at Cloudland in Chattooga County.
DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris told the media on Tuesday that new charges have been brought against Charles Allen Dodd, age 32 of Leesburg, Alabama and Charlotta Lynn Davis, age 50 of Cartersville, Georgia. In all, law enforcement officials believe that the two may have been involved in over 200 burglaries and thefts in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.
The two are believed to have targeted flat-screen televisions and so far investigators have only recovered one of those TV’s. Harris said the primary problem with tracking down the televisions has been lack of serial numbers.
The Sheriff said that homeowners should record the serial numbers of all their belongings and keep them in a safe place. Harris said a total of 150 felony and 31 misdemeanor charges have been brought against Dodd and Davis so far, and they remain in the DeKalb County jail on $79,800 bond each.
Harris said it’s expected that Dodd will also later be charged in relation to additional theft of outdoor furniture from the Mentone area in 2008.
