DeKalb police captain jailed over allegedly stolen property

A DeKalb County police captain was arrested Monday for allegedly having stolen property at her home, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Suzanne Kaulbach was taken into custody after a six-hour warrant application hearing in front of a Clayton County judge.

Investigators believe her partner's son and two other teenagers were responsible for the thefts, Channel 2 said.

The police captain said she didn't know the boat, two ATVs, a dirt bike and other items were stolen.

"I would not have bought new tires for one of them if I thought it was stolen, and I would not have left them on the property if I thought they were stolen," she said.

She was charged with theft by receiving stolen property.

A DeKalb County spokesperson told Channel 2 that Kaulbach is on administrative leave.
