2 charged with burglary


Two Clayton County men have been arrested for two residential burglaries Jan. 22, but detectives have still been unable to locate one of the stolen items: an urn containing the ashes of the victim’s daughter.

Shomari Qutrell Davis, 17, and Jawan Rashad Powell, 20, were arrested last week and charged with two counts of burglary and one count of entering an automobile, sheriff’s detectives said.

The urn, which was kept in a blue velvet box, is heart-shaped and appears to have a black marble-like exterior. Detectives believe the urn was discarded as the burglars fled the scene from the home on Ga. Highway 92 south, possibly in the area of north Spalding County, east Clayton County or south Fayette County. Anyone finding the urn is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 770-716-4750.

Davis and Powell were identified after detectives circulated a surveillance video in which they were selling a Kindle Fire stolen from the residence, officials said.

The second burglary the men are charged with occurred at approximately 12:30 p.m. at a home on Reynolds Place, as the suspects entered the victim’s vehicle and home but fled the scene after being scared off, detectives said.
