Two arrested in PTC burglaries

Peachtree City Police early Wednesday morning arrested two Atlanta men in connection with two Christmas week residential burglaries in the Smokerise subdivision. The burglary of a home in the Kedron Hills subdivision during the same period of time is still under investigation.

Kareem Quintez Moreland, 22, and Duntavious Rashard Moreland, 20, both of Lexington Avenue in Atlanta, were each charged with two counts of burglary, according to department spokesperson Rosanna Dove.

“The investigation led officers to the offenders’ residence in Atlanta where several items that had been stolen during the burglaries were located,” Dove said. “In addition, other items that are not currently linked to these burglaries were located within the residence. Both offenders were transported to the Fayette County Jail where they await court appearances.”

Dove said the investigation into the Kedron Hills burglary is ongoing.

Dove said detectives are currently investigating all circumstances of the crimes. She also advised that if residents witness anyone checking mailboxes, please write down the vehicle description, tag number, and occupant's descriptions, and then call the Peachtree City Police Department immediately either at 911 or 770-461-4357.

If you have any other information that could assist us in the burglary investigations is asked to call 770-631-2510. If you would like to remain anonymous you can call the Crime and Narcotics Information Hotline at 770-487-6010.

Now Let's Hope The Judges Dispense Justice

Let's hope that our judges give these fine gentleman the sentences they deserve in true Fayette County fashion. Let them get 15 years for breaking and entering and another 15 concurrently for Theft.

Let their neighbors up in Atlanta remember that you do not come down to Peachtree City if you want to rob someone as you will get caught and you will go away for a very long time.

Great Job PTC Police Department!

I live near where these break-ins happened. I will sleep a little better this evening knowing these two are off the street.

Thanks for the good detective work!

And they are not just foolish teenagers--they are low-level career criminals and should be prosecuted as such. What's the betting they've both got a rap sheet?
