Six burglary victims from DeKalb and Cobb counties journeyed to Gainesville Tuesday, April 17, to regain their valuables.

“The items were found at a residence inside the city limits of Gainesville,” Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.

The multi-county burglary ring was broken up more than a year ago. Holbrook did not have any information regarding the criminal prosecution.

The hundreds of items at the police department included clothing, jewelry, electronics, gift cards and even more personal items like photographs.

Holbrook said they are still in possession of the stolen items, but all the victims have been notified by investigators.

“Many of the victims thought their cherished items were gone forever. We are happy to bring them tears of joy,” Gainesville Police said.
