Three charged in burglary attempt
Men accused of targeting apartments

Three men seen trying to break into a Georgia Southern University-area apartment after climbing over the balcony are being held in the Bulloch County Jail, according to Statesboro police reports.

Around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Statesboro police were called to Cambridge-at Southern/The Palms apartments on Lanier Drive, which is an off-campus apartment.

Witnesses said they saw three men trying to break into an apartment after climbing over the balcony railing, said Statesboro Police Cpl. Justin Samples.

Advanced Patrol Officer Jared Shababy spotted a vehicle matching the description of the one in which the offenders were seen leaving the scene, performed a traffic stop and placed the three suspects under arrest, he said.

Police incident reports list the suspects as Tory Lamar Brewton, 20, Syril P. Burkhalter Road, Glennville; Aaron Dequan Duncan, 18, Mincey Loop, Glennville; and Shavon Dante Stoves, 22, Woodland Drive, Statesboro; all three charged with criminal attempt to commit burglary.

Stoves is also wanted on a bench warrant, according to jail records.

The suspects are being held without bond until further court hearings, according to jail records.
