On January 26, 2014 at 3:49 a.m. an incident involving a burglary and armed robbery was reported to have occurred approximately 20 to 30 minutes prior in a room in Busbee Hall in the East Campus Village. The victim reported that while he was in his room he heard a commotion in the common area of his residence. When he came out of his room to inquire, he observed three individuals in the act of stealing items from the residence. The victim followed the individuals into the hallway and confronted them. A physical altercation ensued. Another resident overheard the commotion and joined the altercation in assistance of the victim. The perpetrators fled the building and were pursued by the victim and the individual who came to his aid. At this point one of the perpetrators may have revealed a semi-automatic handgun and threatened both individuals. The perpetrators fled the area at that time. The victim received non-life threatening injuries as a result of the altercation.
The perpetrators were four thinly built black males. Surveillance video from the scene shows four black males that may be suspects (see the attached photos). One was described as having dreadlocks and one was believed to be wearing a red shirt. One has a tattoo of a money bag on his neck.
The first subject to enter this video is a witness and has been identified. The last four subjects to enter the video are all suspects and have yet to be identified. Please pay close attention to the clothing the suspects are wearing.
A weapon was never pointed at any of the individuals involved in the confrontation with the perpetrators. Both individuals reported that one perpetrator raised his shirt and made statements at one point during the confrontation alluding to the fact that he may have had a gun. However, one individual reports that he believes he observed a handgun in the individual’s waistband, while the other individual indicates that he did not observe a handgun at any time. It is not clear based on the information known at this point whether or not a gun was involved in this incident.
Anyone who may have information regarding this incident or the identity of these suspects is asked to contact the University of Georgia Police Department's Sgt. Hammock (firstname.lastname@example.org, 706-542-5621). (UGA 14-0237)

On March 5, 2014 at approximately 16:52 hours I responded to 1860 Barnett Shoals Rd in reference to an entering auto. The actual occurrence of the entering auto happened in the parking lot area behind Sorella Hair Studio. Upon my arrival I met with the victim/complainant Caitlin Bozarth.
Bozarth advised me that at approximately 16:15 hours she went outside to her vehicle (Green Ford Mustang) to get a cigarette and her vehicle was not tampered with. Bozarth stated she went back out again at approximately 16:30 hours and observed the passenger side window of her vehicle had been shattered with a large rock. Bozarth noticed that her blue in color purse had been taken, but fortunately Bozarth`s wallet was not inside. The items of value inside the stolen purse were a blood sugar monitor and a black in color sketch book. Bozarth did not see anyone in the back parking area and was unable to name a possible suspect.
While speaking with Bozarth an employee from Barberito`s approached me. The employee advised me that she had video surveillance of a subject looking in cars around the same time frame. I immediately went inside Barberito`s and observed the surveillance video. On the video I observed a white male, approximately early-mid-twenties approached vehicles in the parking area. It appeared the subject was looking inside the vehicles for unknown reasons. The subject was wearing white or greyish sweat pants; dark grey hoodie sweat shirt; flip flop type foot wear; and had brown hair with reddish tint. I passed this description on to Central who put out a BOLO for a possible entering auto suspect. Barberitos will be providing a copy of the surveillance video.
After seeing the video I went back into the parking lot to process the victim`s car for latent fingerprints and take photographs of the damage. I didn`t find any prints to process on the victim`s vehicle, but was able to process a print from the car parked right beside it. This vehicle was entered into the vehicle tab on iLeads as well as the person who drives the vehicle as an involved other. The print I was able to process will be entered into evidence.
