Peachtree City Police have arrested three men in connection with the July 13 home invasion at the Woodland Drive residence of Ceresa Coffee.
Ted Andrew Jefferson, 27, of Snellville, and Gilbert Jefferson, 27, of Lithonia, were both charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery and burglary, according to Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove. Also charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and conspiracy to commit burglary was 28 year-old Peachtree City resident Christopher Falkner, Dove said.
“In the days following the incident, Peachtree City investigators were able to develop leads based on information from the crime scene and witness testimony,” said Dove. “Warrants were obtained for the three offenders, and all were arrested on authority of the warrants and transported to the Fayette County Jail.”
Dove said Ted and Gilbert Jefferson were the two men that entered Coffee’s home.
Coffee’s guest Jeff Young, who was also at the residence during the home invasion, told The Citizen last week that the men demanded money, held him at gunpoint and physically assaulted Coffee. One of the men then shot her as she attempted to flee the property to get help. Coffee was hit in the head by one or more of the shotgun pellets as she ran into the yard.
