Police: 2 burglars on the run after breaking into homes on the market in Milton

Milton Police need the public's help tracking down two people accused of breaking into houses up for sale.

Investigators said Jonathan Coleman and Omisha Sands targeted four houses between July 20 and July 30 in the Brookshade and Vickery Crest subdivisions as well as a neighborhood on Champions View Drive.

Captain Charles Barstow told FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell, in all cases, the pair broke into the back of the houses that were unalarmed at the time.

Police held a community meeting Thursday night to address the concerns. The meeting was scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Milton Police Department.

Investigators released the following tips to concerned citizens.

  • Please remain vigilant and keep an eye out for your all your neighbors, but especially those homes where the owner is not present or living in the home. 
  • If you see anything unusual, please do not hesitate to call 911. 
  • Do not attempt to investigate or check out a home if you suspect it has been burglarized. Please call 911 and our officer will respond.
  • If your home is for sale, and you are no longer living in the home, consider activating your alarm if you have one available.
