According to Gwinnett County Police, a suspect in an April 2 burglary in Hamilton Mill admitted his part in the crime and implicated two others as well.
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.
"I explained to him that I did not come to be at their home for no reason," the officer wrote. "I told him that I knew what he and his friends had done and that I wanted him to tell me the truth."
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.
