Two brothers accused of robbing a Starbucks in Dunwoody may be responsible for a rash of thefts at the coffee giant’s other metro stores, police said.

Quadir T. Johnson, 28, and Jahmsid N. Johnson, 25, have been charged in connection with a burglary Feb. 6 at the Starbucks in the 4000 block of Ashford Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody Sgt. Robert Parsons said.

Investigators “quickly realized that the two men were possibly responsible for 37 other commercial burglaries in the Metro Atlanta area,” Parsons said.
