A set of Gainesville twins is charged with three counts of burglary each, stemming from a Gainesville police investigation.
Naekwon and Raekwon Weston, 17, both face three counts of first-degree burglary in relation to reports from Lenox Park Apartments in Gainesville.
“Additional charges may be forthcoming,” said Gainesville police spokesman Cpl. Kevin Holbrook.
The Westons are suspected in burglaries occurring earlier this month at the apartment complex. Holbrook said the items taken from the apartments were usually electronics, including televisions and gaming systems. A total dollar amount of the property believed to be stolen could not be determined at press time.
Both subjects are being held at the Hall County Jail.
“With the upcoming holidays approaching, it is important for people to be vigilant and report all suspicious behavior and activities to law enforcement,” said Gainesville interim Police Chief Carol Martin in a news release about the burglaries.
A conviction on a first-degree burglary charge, which is a felony, carries a prison sentence of at least one year to a maximum of 20 years.
