Atlanta police recently arrested five people on suspicion of residential burglary – and helped Sandy Springs police close a string of burglary cases in south Sandy Springs, Sandy Springs police reported.

Following the arrest of the five suspects by Atlanta police, a joint investigation by Sandy Springs and Atlanta police resulted in “numerous” items recovered, Sandy Springs police said.

The items helped solve burglaries on Dudley Lane and West Garmon Road. The follow-up investigation continues and police contend that more burglaries could be solved with evidence culled from the continuing investigation.
