COVINGTON, Ga. - Covington Police Department nabbed two suspects in a Wednesday burglary and discovered more than 35 active warrants originating from as far away as Alabama. 

According to a CPD news release, Officer Contrareus Robinson was called to the Covington YMCA in reference to vehicles being broken into with the windows "busted out." While taking the report, a victim informed Robinson her credit card had just been used at Walmart. 

"A witness told the officer that a silver F-150 was parked next to the victim," according to the release. "The witness described the driver of the truck as a black male with dreads and a passenger with a white hoodie and a short hair cut."

Robinson left the YMCA in the direction of the Walmart when he spotted a truck matching the description. 

"Robinson turned around on the vehicle and spotted it in the library parking lot," according to the release. "He made a traffic stop on the vehicle behind the mental health building."

As he was speaking with the suspects, Robinson "saw the driver's license, credit card and social security card of the victim from whom he just took an incident report." according to the release.

Robinson arrested both males and transported them to CPD. 

Lestor Landor, 31, of Dacula, and George Forjoe, 28, of Jacksonville, Florida, were charged with 18 counts of financial transaction card theft, two counts of second-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and theft by taking. Landor was also charged with giving a false name to law enforcement. 

According to the release, Landor also had 35 warrants out of Gwinnett County alone as well as numerous warrants from the Roswell Police Department, Milton Police Department, Dunwoody Police Department and Oxford Police Department in Alabama.
