ATLANTA — Atlanta police say a man and his girlfriend who could be tied to more than 50 burglaries in six states have been arrested.
Department spokesman John Chafee says Blane Nordahl and Elizabeth Music have each been arrested on two counts of burglary, and additional charges are likely.
Chafee says police began investigating a series of burglaries in Atlanta’s Buckhead area last spring. Investigators noticed the suspects had removed window or door panels to gain entry to the homes, and replaced them when they left.
Chafee says the suspects targeted affluent areas and could be linked to between $6 and $7 million in stolen goods total. Of that amount, Chafee says about $1.5 million was stolen from homes in the Atlanta area.
It’s unclear if Nordahl and Music have attorneys.
