Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office arrests 3 in connection with Polaris ATV burglary

POSTED: February 8, 2017 11:37 a.m.
 

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies are looking for multiple suspects in connection with a break-in at Polaris ATV store in Cumming early Wednesday morning.

Deputies have arrested three suspects so far, but believe more are involved.

Around 4:45 a.m., the Cumming Police Department informed the sheriff’s office that there was a burglary-in-progress call at the RGR Motorsports/Polaris ATV store, which is located at 594 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.

The sheriff’s office is not releasing the names or photos of those arrested due to detectives still working the investigation, Rainwater said.

The suspects were reportedly driving a white Dodge Charger and U-Haul truck, but fled the scene in their vehicles when police arrived.

One suspect was apprehended after the U-Haul crashed, though two other were able to flee on foot, Rainwater said.

The Charger was able to escape.

Shortly after the crash, the owner of Polaris, who had reportedly just seen the video of the burglary at his business, called deputies to the area of Atlanta Highway and Highway 20 in reference to the other two suspects, Rainwater said.

There, one suspect was detained and the other once again fled, but was later apprehended after “several citizens called us about a suspicious person walking south on Ga. 400,” according to Rainwater.

Deputies were able to link the suspicious person to the burglary and take them into custody.

“We would like to give a big shout out to our citizens who saw something and said something,” Rainwater said. “This is still a fluid investigation and due to our detectives still pursuing leads, we are not able to release names or photos at this time.”

It really is getting unnerving the brazenness of several recent robberies in Forsyth County, but I also have to say that FCSO is elite at aprehending these criminals.
