LILBURN, Ga. -- Lilburn police have charged a man with stealing a range of items -- everything from electronics to crucifixes -- from units at a storage facility.
Matthew Dean Jones, 50, faces three counts of burglary and one count of firearm possession by a convicted felon. More charges are pending.
Jones is one of two suspects in a rash of burglaries at Extra Space Storage in the 4400 block of Lawrenceville Highway. The on-site property manager called police after noticing that Jones and an associate frequently visited the facility and spent a considerable amount of time there.
Surveillance cameras on the property captured images of Jones entering the facility with an empty flatbed trailer, then leaving with the trailer loaded with items. The video also showed Jones removing the locks on storage units, stealing the contents and then swapping the old locks for new ones.
