Cops: Midtown theft suspect caught with stolen items in roller suitcase

Atlanta police arrested a 22-year-old man who they say had a roller suitcase that contained items from three burglaries in Midtown and Sherwood Forest.

An officer found Khalil Moten after responding to a suspicious person call Tuesday near 7th Street and Glendale Terrace, police said on Facebook.

“Moten was carrying a roller suitcase with him,” police said.

He was charged with three counts of burglary and prowling, according to police.

Moten was previously arrested in Alabama on charges of burglary and damage to property, police said. Details about that case and the recent burglaries have not been released.
