The Gainesville Police Department has charged five people with burglary, some of whom already face charges from the Hall County Sheriff's Office in connection with a Monday burglary in Oakwood.

The most recent charges are related to three Gainesville burglaries on Christopher Drive, Willow Ridge Drive and Providence Drive, all taking place in the last two months, according to officer Kevin Holbrook.

Three of the five charged in connection to those incidents were arrested Monday by the sheriff's office following a burglary in the 3600 block of Windy Hill Drive in Oakwood.

The new charges stemmed from the earlier arrests, Holbrook said.

"We were able to get physical evidence as well as interviews to determine that they were responsible for the other burglaries," Holbrook said.

David Olivas, 17, Arlet Ariana Ramirez, 17, and Aida Rodriguez, 18, all of Gainesville, were charged Monday by the sheriff's office and have now been charged by the police department.

Marcos Antonio Cruz, 18, and Andres Zavala, 17, both of Gainesville, were also charged by the police department in connection with the three Gainesville burglaries.

Two juveniles, whose names have not been released, were also charged by the sheriff's office in connection with the Oakwood burglary.

Investigators were able to recover some stolen items including jewelry, cash, clothing and electronic
