Detectives with the Troy Police Department broke up a burglary ring on Tuesday and charged two juveniles and four adults with counts related to 11 mobile home burglaries that took place Monday and Tuesday.

In addition to the two 17-year-old juveniles from Troy the 18-year-olds were also all from Troy.

Tarvarus T. King and Adrian Moultry both accumulated bonds of $100,000 apiece. Both were charged with one count of burglary, first degree for the alleged thefts of firearms and seven counts of burglary, third degree.

Titus Mario Williams was charged with one count of burglary, first degree and four counts of burglary, third degree. His bond was set at a total of $70,000.

Chris Maddox was charged with two counts of burglary, third degree and one count of receiving stolen property. His bond was set at a total of $30,000.

In addition to firearms, other items that have been recovered include: televisions, VCRs, DVD players, compact disc players, sound mixers, microwave ovens, clothing, money, jewelry, electronic games, telephones (cordless and cellular), video tapes and games, ammunition, credit cards and food items, said, Capt. Lewis Fannin.

Fannin said the property was recovered from several locations, but all the property has not been recovered.

More arrests are also possible, said Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, public information officer for the police department.

The burglaries reported Monday and Tuesday occurred at Sunset Mountain, Forest Acres and Dozier Mobile Home parks, Scarbrough said.

Since it was a citizen’s tip that led to the arrests, authorities are hoping others might have pertinent information.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 566-0500 or the Secret Witness Line at 566-5555.
