2 men arrested after 5 burglaries in NW Atlanta; third suspect on run

Two men accused of five overnight burglaries in northwest Atlanta were arrested Wednesday morning, police said.

Michael Hill, 17, and Jaquantay Campbell, 26, face burglary and entering auto charges, Atlanta police said in a news release. One suspect is still on the loose.

The three suspects are accused of breaking into garages and vehicles at homes along Glendale Drive, Peachtree Battle Avenue, Rhodenhaven Drive and Montana Road, the release said. 

They stole four cars, taking two from the area, the release said. Atlanta police tracked them to East Point, which is where local police and Georgia State Patrol troopers assisted in arresting Hill and Campbell. 

No information was provided about the third suspect.

The law enforcement agencies also were able to recover all the stolen cars and a stolen handgun, which was found on one of the suspects, the release said. It’s unclear which suspect the stolen handgun was found on or if additional charges are pending.

Hill and Campbell were taken to the East Point Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
