The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a 20-year-old Forsyth man who is accused of two commercial burglaries earlier this month, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
Robert Jacob Green is accused of burglarizing the Jackson Country Store, located at 9005 Thomaston Road, and the Walthall gas station in Bolingbroke in the early morning hours of May 17, the release said. Green is thought to be one of three in acrew of serial burglars.
Surveillance video at the Thomaston Road store shows three people used a crow bar to enter, but the alleged bandits were unable to breach the second security door and left without any loot. Cigarettes and chewing tobacco were the only items taken from the Bolingbroke store, which was burglarized in the same manner, the release said.
Monroe County sheriff’s investigators searched Green’s house Wednesday and found several items used in the burglary, the release said. Investigators also found the same clothing the suspects wore at the time of the burglaries. Green is a blue-eyed, white male described as being 6 feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds, the release said.

Anyone with information about Green’s whereabouts is asked to call sheriff’s Sgt. Lawson Bittick at 478-994-7043.
