BPS quickly arrests suspects in burglary cases near Vada Road

Three individuals were apprehended by Bainbridge Public Safety Tuesday evening after they were caught on security footage stealing from locations on Belcher Lane and Loblolly Lane Monday.

A surveillance system installed by one of the residences captured suspects Kentarious Jackson, 17, Javarus Bailey, 17, and Tyler Stinson, 19, stealing property. BPS had support from the public and the Department of Juvenile Justice in identifying and arresting the suspects.

As of print time Tuesday, two out of the three suspects had confessed to the burglaries they are being charged with.

“The property was destroyed when they thought they were going to be apprehended,” BPS investigator Chip Nix said. “They got rid of it.”

Nix applauded the use of home surveillance systems by Bainbridge residents, especially the one BPS used to identify these three suspects because it covered such a large area.

“This area has become a popular target for crimes in the past,” Nix said. “I can’t think of one we did not arrest, because we have neighborhood watch out here. It’s not the area to pick on, but for some reason they come out here.”

All of BPS’s criminal investigation division assisted with the apprehension of the three suspects.
