One man arrested, dozens of cases solved

- Cobb County and Marietta Police say more than a dozen cases have now been solved with the arrest of one man over the weekend.  His name is Michael Hoosier, and police say they found stolen guns, phones and credit cards. 

"There were multiple guns and weapons and cellphones and credit cards, and even drugs located in the vehicle," said Cobb County Police Officer Sarah O'Hara. 

Over the weekend, Marietta Police say they worked numerous cases of cars broken into at WhiteWater. One man told Fox5, his car was one of them. "We immediately called 911, and as we were there we could see multiple people coming up saying 'hey, my window just got busted' and 'my car got broken into' and 'someone stole guns out of my car' so we knew we weren't the only ones," he said. 

The man said his father-in-law's iPhone was stolen, so they tracked it with an app.  "We immediately jumped in the car and started tracking him down."

The man said they found it in a car at a shopping center about 7 miles away and flagged down a Cobb County Police Car.  The Sargeant tried to get the driver and his passenger to stop, but instead the driver took off and police went after them. 

"They're going through a shopping center at a high rate of speed so the officer backs off, and while the suspect is leaving he hits a BMW," said Officer O'Hara.

The woman driving the BMS was not hurt.  A short time later police found the car abandoned at a shopping center just down the road.   Police searched the area using a K-9. 

"The K-9 is doing his job and finds a glove, a bag with two handguns, a large knife and some other effects in it," said Officer O'Hara.

Police say the bag was near an elevator.  Officers pressed the elevator button, the doors opened, and inside they found Michael Hoosier.  Police are still looking for the man who they say was with Hoosier, but they say with this one arrest they've already solved a number of cases. 

"Awesome work by our detectives and the officers who were out there and with Marietta Police who has been working with us to get all these cases resolved," said Officer O'Hara.
