SAVANNAH, GA. (October 10, 2013): An alert citizen led Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police to the arrest of two suspects after a rolling, county-wide surveillance operation Wednesday.
Dominick Bernard Coney, 17, was charged with burglary, possession of a drug-related object and possession of marijuana after patrol and undercover officers from three precincts, SCMPD canine officers, a Georgia State Patrol trooper and Metro’s police helicopter Eagle 1 followed the car he was in from Abercorn Street to a subdivision off Quacco Road.
Orinthus Lenard Harding, 18, of a Katama Way address also was charged with possession of marijuana.
Islands Precinct officers had been called to the 1400 block of Dale Drive on Tuesday by a witness who saw a male flee a residence and enter a Toyota Sonata. Responding officers found a window broken.
On Wednesday about 4 p.m., the witness called back and advised the Sonata was on Abercorn. Officers converged on the area, following the car until it stopped in the Hampton Place subdivision.
The two occupants were charged with possession and Bernard was identified as the suspect in the burglary.
