WARNER ROBINS -- For the third time in about a month, police have made an arrest after responding to a call of a burglary in progress.

Police spokeswoman Tabitha Clark said it’s not often that burglars are caught in the act, but she said residents have been doing a good job of watching out for their neighbors and relaying a good description when they call 911.

Police arrested three teenagers Tuesday when responding to a burglary in progress on Peachtree Circle.

A 15-year-old boy and two girls, ages 15 and 14, are accused of breaking into a home in the 200 block of Peachtree Circle, a Warner Robins police news release stated. All three have extensive arrest histories, according to the release.

While headed to the 2:21 p.m. call, officers were given descriptions of the suspects and spotted them near East End Avenue and Vesta Drive. The teens were arrested and charged with burglary, the release stated.

Clark said officers responded to the call within one minute.

One of the other burglary-in-progress arrests also happened on Peachtree Circle a couple of weeks ago.

“Citizens get a lot of the credit for helping us,” Clark said.

Anyone with information related to the burglary is asked to call Warner Robins police detectives at 478-302-5380 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at 478-742-2330.
