A man was arrested July 24 in Alabama and charged for his role in a May 25 armed invasion and robbery of a home in Buckhead, police say.
Leon Scott was identified as having participated in the home invasion following an extensive investigation by Atlanta Police Investigators assigned to the FBI Violent Crime Task Force in Atlanta, Sgt. Greg Lyon, a spokesman for Atlanta Police, said.
Scott made his initial appearance last week in U.S. District Court in Atlanta and he will remain in custody until a July 29 bond hearing, Lyon said. His arrest follows an ongoing investigation into a series of home invasions in the Northwest part of the city commonly known as the Buckhead community, Lyon said.
