Dunwoody burglary suspect caught with help of maintenance worker

A man accused of nearly a dozen burglaries in Dunwoody has been arrested thanks to a tip from an apartment maintenance worker, police said.

Anthony Harris of Roswell faces second-degree burglary charges after he allegedly slept inside storage units at the Marq Eight apartment complex, stealing items from them afterward, Dunwoody police told Channel 2 Action News.

Police initially found and arrested two other people who were sleeping in an empty unit on prowling and loitering charges, but a maintenance worker found and identified Harris, who is accused of burglarizing at least 10 units.

Police told Channel 2 they found stolen items from the other storage units.

“TVs, documents, clothing — you name it,” police Sgt. Robert Parsons told the news station. “Anything in those storage units that was worth something, he was taking.”

Harris was arrested Dec. 30 and remains in the DeKalb County Jail, according to jail records. 

Police believe the other two people were accomplices in the burglaries, but they haven’t been charged.
