Eight people have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a series of burglaries from storage units in Georgetown.

According to a news release from the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, on June 10 and 12, investigators with the BCSO, in cooperation with the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Austin Ledbetter, 19, of Decatur; Dakota Thomas, 22, of Decatur; Haley Lawson, 26, of Cleveland; Jackie Roberts, 42, of Georgetown; Billy Harden, 20, of Decatur; Billie Redden, 22, of Decatur; David Dixon, 22, of Birchwood; and Chase Christian, 27, of Charleston.

Charges range from several counts of burglary and theft to vandalism and conspiracy to commit burglary.

“Additional charges are pending stemming from narcotics found during the arrests,” the news release stated.

Dixon had multiple outstanding warrants including violation of state probation and Christian had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on Narcotics related charges in Bradley County. 

“Twelve separate storage units have been burglarized leaving several thousand dollars in damage at the storage facility as well as items stolen from the premises,” the news release stated. “This has been an ongoing investigation for a period of several months ending with the arrest of several suspects after evidence of the crimes was left at the scene.”

According to the BCSO, a limited amount of property has been recovered and returned to the rightful owners.
