Police Searching for Geneva Burglars

Police have identified two suspects—Stephen Edward Jones, who police say has several tattoos and a woman named Allison Bove.
Burglary after burglary--that's been the case lately in Geneva. It started with Mulkey Elementary School last week--just two days after school started. Then a home where a lawn mower and personal belongings were stolen and then just two doors down from that home, a safe from Maple Avenue Baptist Church was wheeled out and then pulled through a window. The latest was last night, a Subway restaurant. All of these break-ins were within a quarter mile of each other and police believe all the crimes are related.

Police have identified two suspects—Stephen Edward Jones, who police say has several tattoos and a woman named Allison Bove.

"It's all going to be connected I'm sure. We're pretty positive from looking at the video of the suspects and everything they appear to be the same size and stature so we feel that they're all going to be combined," said Lt. Ricky Morgan of the Geneva Police Department.

Police say they think drugs are the motivating factor behind the crimes.

"We have such a big drug problem. Meth is ever so prevalent in Geneva County, Houston County, Coffee County and Holmes County, Florida below us and it's just a huge problem that this is what people are resorting to, is stealing and things of that nature," said Morgan.

Police are saying they don't think it's going to stop here; they're patrolling the neighborhood and preparing for more of the same burglaries until they can catch the culprits. Multiple agencies are now involved and again they're asking the community to keep an eye out and if you see anything out of the ordinary or have any information on the suspects, call police.
