Identical twins in jail after alleged Fulton crime spree

Two brothers accused of at least seven robberies across metro Atlanta in May are no ordinary criminals: they’re identical twins.

Marquavious and Juntavious Burton, 20, were arrested in early June. According to Fulton County jail records, the twins have been arrested multiple times since 2015 on charges such as aggravated assault and theft by receiving stolen property.

The latest charges include seven counts of armed robbery and a charge of participating in criminal street gang activity. Police believe they may be responsible for even more recent robberies.

The Burton twins have also been accused of shooting at some of the robbery victims, Channel 2 Action News reported.
