LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

The Lee County Sheriff's Office arrested a suspect they say is responsible for stealing approximately $25,000 worth of items from residences in both Georgia and Alabama.

Tevin Stinson was arrested and charged with four counts of burglary of the third degree, three counts of theft of property in the first degree, and theft of property in the third degree. He is being held at the Lee County Detention Facility on $22,000 bond.

The items were recovered from Stinson's home on Bull Durham St. in Opelika. Some of the stolen items include firearms, flat screen televisions, gaming systems, compound bows and arrows, ammunition, jewelry and jewelry boxes, knives, a safe, and other electronic devices.

The recovery is a result of a three month-long investigation by the Lee County Sheriff's Office, Auburn Police Department, Opelika Police Department, Chambers County Sheriff's Office and Troup County Sheriff's Office.

Joseph Kelly of Chambers County and Craig Stinson of Auburn were also linked to these burglaries and have been arrested by law enforcement. Kelly has been charged by the Troup County Sheriff's Office and is in jail on a $40,000 bond. Stinson has been charged by the Auburn Police Department and is in jail with no bond for other burglaries.

The three individuals are credited for burglarizing from approximately 20 residences, but are believed to be responsible for many more.

Additional arrests are possible.
