Brookhaven police assisted the Atlanta Police Department in the arrest of two men suspected in a string of car break-ins in Brookhaven, Fulton County and Atlanta.

Officer Carlos Nino, spokesperson for Brookhaven PD, said on May 17 the department was investigating about five car break-ins in the Buford Highway area.

A witness told police he or she saw a silver Ford F150 truck in the area. A Brookhaven detective was following up on that lead and also learned that one of the Brookhaven victims found out his stolen tools were pawned at a shop on Donald Lee Holloway Parkway, Nino said. The detective went to the pawn shop and saw a silver F-150 parked there. He called Atlanta police to let them know that the suspects’ car was at the pawn shop, Nino said.

“Our detective just happened to be there and thought this might be the guy and called Atlanta police,” Nino said. “He was at the right place at the right time.”

APD officers were patrolling the area and, according to an APD report, they saw Brookhaven Cpl. Tom Martin, who had pulled his gun and had his car’s blue lights flashing, attempting to arrest suspects in the F-150.

The men in the F-150 ran when they saw Martin and the APD officers chased them on foot. Two of three suspects were captured and arrested. Atlanta police identified them as Jennorris Brinson and Naqwan Arnold, both 21. They were charged with fleeing an officer and theft by receiving stolen property from vehicles.
