On the morning of April 3, police went to 3600 Jim Moore Road during the course of investigating the Hamilton Mill burglary. An officer spoke with a tenant and asked who else lived at the home. The tenant said he and seven children occupied the residence.
Upon further questioning, the officer determined one of the man's sons matched the description given in an earlier suspicious activity call. The officer asked to speak with the son. The tenant returned with four males, including Jacorey Lewis, Jayson Gonsalves and Darius Rouse.
The officer asked the males where they had been the previous day. Lewis, Gonsalves and Rouse reportedly stated they had been together at the Jim Moore Road house for the entire day.
"I could see that my questions were making Jacorey [Lewis] very nervous and that his carotid artery was just about jumping out of his neck," the officer noted in the report.
The officer asked to speak with Lewis outside and Lewis agreed.
Lewis allegedly admitted he was with Rouse and Gonsalves when the three entered a home on Coopers Mill Court. He reportedly explained a fourth individual driving a white Nissan Maxima picked them up on Jim Moore Road after the burglary. According to the officer's account of the interview, Lewis said the trio had taken golf bags, controllers, two watches, a camera and a speaker.
When interviewed by the officer, Rouse and Gonsalves denied any knowledge of the burglary but, according to the report, did confirm multiple times they had been with Lewis the entire day.
Based on Lewis' statement, the officer placed all three under arrest for burglary. The three men are also each facing a charge of violating Georgia's Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.
