3 charged with Hall County burglaries
Investigators uncovered electronics, jewelry, firearms
Hall County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the owner of this stolen jewelry box that was recently recovered.

Three Gainesville residents are facing multiple burglary charges.

Arrested were Jessica Flores, 24, who is also being held on three counts of burglary and an immigration hold; Carlos R. Flores, 20, two counts of burglary and a probation hold; and Jose Rodriguez, 19, two counts of theft by receiving, immigration hold, violation of street gang act, no drivers licence and burglary.

Hall County investigators said they recovered about $3,000 in electronics, jewelry and firearms, and returned most to their owners.

The burglaries occurred in the 5100 block of Old Federal Road, 6300 block of Looper Lake Road, 4300 block of Joe Chandler Road, 2800 block of Gaines Mill Road, 5800 block of Poplar Lane and 3600 block of Lakeview Drive.

Investigators are still seeking the owner of a jewelry box that measures about 12 inches by 8 inches.

One of the four drawers is missing and one has a heart-shaped opening. There was no jewelry in the box when it was recovered.

"We're hoping to identify that because it could lead to other burglaries they were involved in," said Sgt. Kiley Sargent of the Hall County Sheriff's Office.

The three also face additional burglary charges in Jackson County.

Anyone who can assist the investigation is asked to contact the sheriff's office's Criminal Investigations Division at 770-531-6879.
