SAVANNAH, GA (April 15, 2015): Today, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s early morning extra patrols of a West Chatham neighborhood led to the arrests of four repeat entering auto suspects, moments after their last hit.

The incident began at about 4:48 a.m. in a Georgetown area apartment complex on Saint George Boulevard. An SCMPD officer conducting extra patrols of the area due to a recent spike in vehicle break-ins noticed an unoccupied black Jeep Cherokee with opened doors.  After checking the Jeep, the officer observed a Honda Accord speeding out of the complex, prompting a traffic stop at King George Boulevard and Highway 204.

The Honda was occupied by Cameron Rauls, De-Andre Baker, Lawrence Walker and Kewanee Lewis. All four are 20-years-old. The driver authorized Metro’s search of the vehicle, which uncovered an electronic tablet confirmed stolen from the Jeep Cherokee.

West Chatham Precinct detectives confirmed that Rauls, Baker, Walker and Lewis where the suspects who unlawfully entered and attempted to enter at least four vehicles in the Georgetown area this morning. Detectives believe they could be linked to at least a dozen entering auto cases in Georgetown.

The suspects are charged with entering auto.
