ELMORE CO., AL (WSFA) -

Multiple suspects wanted in connection to a string of burglaries in Elmore County are under arrest, confirms the sheriff's department.

Sheriff Bill Franklin says the arrests started with two people after items from some of the nine burglarized homes appeared in local pawn shops. Then, the arrests multiplied to six as investigators linked others to the crimes.

Taken into custody were Wetumpka residents Mario Golden, 27, Travion Murphy, 22, and Laterrious Murphy, 19. Also arrested were Dexter resident Cornelius Singleton, 35; Wallsboro resident Keon Bowe, 28, and Weoka resident Jody Tyson, 41.

Golden and the 2 Murphys are charged second degree theft of property and third degree burglary. They're being held on bonds of $10,000. Bowe is charged with three counts of second degree theft of property and three counts of third degree burglary. He's being held on a $60,000 bond. Tyson faces a first degree attempted burglary charge with a $10,000 bond and Singleton is facing a menacing and probation violation which comes with a $1,500 bond.

The sheriff says Tyson and Singleton's roles were different than the other suspects. Tyson is said to have been involved in scoping out potential homes to burglarize and Singleton's involvement boils down to threatening Tyson's life over an unpaid drug debt.
