Two men connected to car burglaries in East Brainerd have been arrested in northwest Georgia.
Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says around 4:30 p.m. Monday they responded to a report of a carjacking on Picture Ridge Drive in East Brainerd.
Officials say the two suspects reportedly confronted the occupants of a 2007 four door Ford and stole the vehicle at gunpoint.
Deputies put out a regional be on lookout to area law enforcement. A short time later, detectives developed a lead that the carjacked vehicle was located at Cloud Springs Lodge on Pine Grove Road in Fort Oglethorpe.
With assistance from the Georgia Highway Patrol, Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office, and the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Detectives were able to recover the carjacked vehicle and a weapon which matched the description provided by the victim.
The suspects, Sharoon S. Pervez, 25 and Eric L. Barde, 25, were both arrested by Fort Oglethorpe Police personnel at the scene.
