WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Investigators in Cherokee County have nabbed three men suspected of smash and grab burglaries in at least five metro Atlanta counties.
Vincent Donahue, James Hill and Mark McCain were taken into custody Nov. 28.
Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jay Baker said the suspects are believed to be the men behind seven burglaries in Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas, Henry and Rockdale counties.
In each case, the suspects broke the front doors out of a convenience store and made off with cartons of cigarettes.
Baker said the three men were arrested after they were pulled over on Highway 92 in Woodstock. Investigators found plastic bins similar to the ones used in the robberies in their car, as well as a hammer, rubber gloves, masks, a sledgehammer and a small amount of heroin.
