Several southside law enforcement agencies teamed up this week to arrest two teenagers accused of a lengthy crime spree.
A 15-year-old and 17-year-old Martavious Brown were arrested in College Park after being tied to nearly two dozen crimes, South Fulton police said in a Facebook post.
The crimes, which all took place in South Fulton’s jurisdiction, included theft, fleeing police and criminal street gang participation, authorities said. The juvenile’s age was not released because he is being charged as a minor.
On Tuesday, the two were reportedly inside a stolen vehicle on Godby Road when they were confronted by College Park police officers, according to the post. The duo allegedly ran into a nearby apartment before being arrested by officers and Clayton County deputies.
“These two suspects have been involved in one too many crimes within the city of South Fulton as well as throughout metro Atlanta — our cities will be safer tonight,” South Fulton police Lt. Jubal Rogers said in the post.
Details about their custody weren’t immediately available. As of Wednesday evening, Brown’s name did not show up as a current inmate in either the Fulton County or Clayton County jails.
