3 arrested in PTC home invasion

Peachtree City Police have arrested three men in connection with the July 13 home invasion at the Woodland Drive residence of Ceresa Coffee.

Ted Andrew Jefferson, 27, of Snellville, and Gilbert Jefferson, 27, of Lithonia, were both charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery and burglary, according to Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove. Also charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and conspiracy to commit burglary was 28 year-old Peachtree City resident Christopher Falkner, Dove said.
 
“In the days following the incident, Peachtree City investigators were able to develop leads based on information from the crime scene and witness testimony,” said Dove. “Warrants were obtained for the three offenders, and all were arrested on authority of the warrants and transported to the Fayette County Jail.”
 
Dove said Ted and Gilbert Jefferson were the two men that entered Coffee’s home.
 
 
 
 
 
Coffee’s guest Jeff Young, who was also at the residence during the home invasion, told The Citizen last week that the men demanded money, held him at gunpoint and physically assaulted Coffee. One of the men then shot her as she attempted to flee the property to get help. Coffee was hit in the head by one or more of the shotgun pellets as she ran into the yard.

Well-done PTC police

Yes! I'm so glad these guys were busted.

I really wish criminals would read the paper once in a while. They would soon learn that crime in PTC is a pretty stupid thing to do. You get caught. Try your luck somewhere else, criminals (oops, there I go again, thinking criminals will read something).
Heck, maybe a sign as you enter PTC saying, "Criminals will be caught."

But, then.....that requires that these guys can read more than a three-letter word.

Stay in school, kids, and then after you finish high school or college, get a job, work hard, and you'll have the nice things you want. It's not rocket science. It's just a life of work and honesty. That's all it takes to be successful.

You don't need a huge TV, gold jewelry, and all the latest cool clothing and electronics. You just need family, friends, food, and freedom.

I'll second the "Why not attempted murder?" question...

anyone with any good ideas?

Maybe the other charges cover it....

I know CC, I wish she would have/could have shot the SOB's.
