A burglary investigation led police to four arrests on Thursday:  one for several burglaries and attempted burglaries, and three others — the offender’s roommates — on drug charges.

Statesboro police officers responded around 3 a.m. to reports of several burglaries at Southern Downs Apartments on Georgia Avenue, said Statesboro police Deputy Chief Rob Bryan.

After a brief investigation, detectives identified and located Kedar Ishmael Shakespeare-Campbell, 21, of Georgia Avenue, and charged him with three counts of first-degree “smash and grab” burglary and two counts of criminal attempt at committing first-degree burglary, he said.

Further investigation led to detectives and officers also charging Shakespeare-Campbell with possession of a schedule I controlled substance, possession of a schedule II controlled substance, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug-related objects, Bryan said.

Officers arrested Shakespeare-Campbell’s roommates on drug charges as well.

Xavier Rob Barron 23, of Georgia Avenue, was charged with possession of a schedule I controlled substance and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute; Brittany Michelle Logan, 23, of Georgia Avenue, was charged with possession of a schedule I controlled substance, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony; and Mark Rashad Hester, 20, of Georgia Avenue, was charged with possession of a schedule I controlled substance, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

All four were taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where they await further court action, Bryan said. Photos were unavailable for Logan, Hester and Barron Thursday evening.
