Three men arrested Perry home robbery cases
Detective Thomas Daly explained he was leaving a Christine Circle home believed to have been burglarized by the suspects when he saw the men.
“They were riding girls bicycles pink in color with green rims and I also noticed heavy back packs on both of them, ” said Daly.
Donnel Robert Stinson, 17, and Trevion Jamal Richardson, 17, were caught hiding out at a home on Creekwood Drive in Perry Tuesday.
“One of the suspects came out of the back bedroom and Donnell Stinson was actually hiding in the hallway closet under a pile of clothing,” said Detective James Jones.
According to Perry Police Criminal Investigation Division Capt. Heath Dykes the men ran into a home located at 1105 Creekwood Drive after being chased by police.
“In the house we found several items that had been stolen in residential burglaries, in Perry over the last month,” said Dykes.
The back packs were filled with items stolen from the homes including jewelry and coins, he added. In addition to the home burglary charges, Richardson Stinson is facing armed robbery, theft by taking, and criminal damage to property charges.
The third suspect in the case, Willie Collier, has also been arrested. He is charged with party to a crime of burglary.
“I’m glad they got ’em,” says 83-year-old Pauline Rumph. Rumph has lived in the Creekwood neighborhood since 1969. “I wish they would stop you know breaking into people’s houses.”
Perry Police Chief, Steve Lynn, says his department worked diligently to catch the suspected thieves.
“Going after every lead while it was hot and following it through that’s what breeds success,” says Lynn. “That’s the reason that Perry has been voted one of the safest places to live in the state of Georgia.”
Police say Richardson and Collier have never been arrested. Authorities say Stinson has been arrested previously for making terroristic threats.
