MONROE -- Monroe police say they've arrested three men in relation to 18 burglary investigations.
Police say Jamarcus Manning, David Jackson, and Chris Jackson are now facing charges. Investigators believe the men stole property from homes on Auburn, Roselawn, and Stubbs Avenue in Monroe on or around November 1st.
Authorities say the arrests close six investigations and could complete 12 others.
"This is why these bad guys decided to pick some of these houses, alright, houses that looked like nobody was home. Property that was left out in the open making it easy for some of these burglars to take," says Sgt. Mark Johnson.
He says police are still searching for two juveniles in connection to these crimes.
Police say the community played a big role in the investigations. They encourage folks to continue to call CrimeStoppers when they have information for police.
