Authorities seek third suspect in Hall County burglary

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
GAINESVILLE - Investigators with the Hall County Sheriff's Office Tuesday were looking for a third suspect in connection with the burglary of a vacant house in Clermont earlier this month.

According to the sheriff's office, the burglary in progress call came just after midnight in the area of Mount Vernon Road and Old Dahlonega Highway on October 9.

Investigators detained and later arrested 22 year-old Jonathan Burnett and 25 year-old Casey Walls, both of Murrayville. Each suspect now faces one count each of first degree burglary. They've each been released on bond.

The crime happened in the 6000 block of Old Dahlonega Highway. Investigators said the suspects made off with small items, including silverware, phones, costume jewelry and other property. Authorities discovered the items in the suspects' vehicle.

The lookout is for Randy Lee Berry. Deputies said Berry took off before deputies arrived early that Tuesday morning.

Authorities recovered all of the stolen property, which was valued at over $200.
