Cherokee County police have linked six people to numerous crimes, including 22 auto break-ins.
Christopher Eriquezzo, 19, Andrew Brooks, 22, Kody Allison, 19, and Bethany Copley, 17, all of Woodstock, were all arrested and booked into the Cherokee County jail, Brittany Duncan, spokeswoman for Woodstock police, said Thursday afternoon. All four have been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary in the second degree and tampering with evidence.
Allison and Eriquezzo also were charged with one count of theft by shoplifting in an unrelated incident.
Warrants have been secured for the arrest of a fifth individual, Angie Mulbah, 37, of Woodstock, on the same charges, Duncan said. But Mulbah had not been taken into custody Thursday afternoon.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office also has charged Eriquezzo and a sixth suspect, Austin Stepho, 17, of Woodstock, according to Lt. Jay Baker.
Eriquezzo and Stepho face 22 charges of entering auto, Baker said. The entering autos occurred in the subdivisions of Towne Lake Hills East, Towne Lake Hills West and Arbor View off East Cherokee Drive, Baker said.
Stepho’s bond is set at $45,000, and Eriquezzo’s bond is set at $160,700, the sheriff’s office said. Bond for Brooks was set at $59,900, but he is being held on probation violation. Allison’s bond was set at $41,550, and Copley posted a $42,200 bond and was released, Baker said.
