 Deputies arrest 6 in Burglary of Jasper Convenience Store

   Pickens County Georgia, January 3, 2017: During the night of January 1st, deputies with the Pickens Sheriff’s Office and Jasper Police Officers arrest 6 individuals for breaking into the Dunn’s Food Mart in Talking Rock Georgia.

   Deputies with the Pickens Sheriff’s Office spotted a suspicious vehicle near the Dunn’s Food Mart located at the intersection of Hwy 515 and Antioch Church Road in Talking Rock Georgia. While the deputies were speaking with the two individuals, Jasper Police Officers confirmed that a break in had taken place at Dunn’s Food Mart.

As both agencies continued the investigation, 4 additional individuals were arrested in connections to the case. Detectives then began the work of processing the scene and learned that another convenient

store in Fannin County had also been burglarized during the night. After reaching out to detectives with the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that the same individuals were involved in that burglary as well.

  At this time, all individuals are being charged with Burglary and additional pending charges. The individuals arrested are:

  • •  Kendra Nicole Brown, 32 year old, black female from Decatur Georgia

  • •  Harriett Renea Gray, 44 year old, black female from Atlanta Georgia

  • • Anquesia Rena Gray, 26 year old, black female from Atlanta Georgia

  • •  Phillip Brandon Kemp, 23 year old, black male from Forrest Park Georgia

  • •  Kelly Montique Rabon, 18 year old, black male from Atlanta Georgia

  • •  Trayvis Dwong Gray, 25 year old, black male from Atlanta Georgia
    Due to the fact that the investigation is ongoing and active, no additional details are available. 

Original Story from Monday

   Local law enforcement may have gotten a major break overnight Sunday in the rash of burglaries when a patrol spotted suspicious activity at Dunn’s convenience store in Talking Rock, leading to six arrests of individuals from the metro area.

    Captain Kris Stancil with the sheriff’s office said a patrolling deputy stopped two people leaving the store and then four others were stopped later by deputies and all arrested for an attempted burglary at Dunn's Food Store, off of Highway 515 in Talking Rock.

   Few details were being released Monday as Stancil said there are about 20 different agencies involved in the larger investigation of burglaries across north Georgia. He said it was too early to know which, or how many break-ins, those in custody are responsible for.

   "We only know that this group is responsible for this single incident at this point," he said. 

   He said there are search warrants to process and he couldn't release specifics until after that. Information on those arrested was not available Monday morning.

In the past two weeks, there have been burglaries at two convenience stores in Pickens County, one restaurant and an armed robbery at the Waffle House here.

I'm so glad no one has been injured during this rash of burglaries. Especially store employees, customers, and our brave men/women in blue!

Is it necessary to state the race of each suspect? That bit of information feeds the narrative that those are different are the problem in this town. I am glad these individuals were caught, however I think it needs to come across as criminals are criminals, this comes off as "black people are coming up to rural areas and ruining our town"

No one is judging them as criminals - oh wait, they were caught after breaking into the store, and stealing from other people. I guess that is what makes them criminals. Don't care if they are from this county or another. Hopefully, the family that loves them will come visit them at the Pickens County jail.

These people were arrested for stealing rifles 3 years ago. Why aren't they in prison?
