CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) - A large investigation netted several arrests in West Georgia. Authorities cracked a case where they recovered 24 ATVs worth around $147,000.

The Carroll County Criminal Investigations Division began working theft cases involving multiple stolen four-wheelers. During the course of the investigation, they were asked to assist the A.C.E. (Aggressive Criminal Enforcement) Unit that consists of members from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, the State University of West Georgia and the Carrollton Police Department in serving a warrant in the area of Kennedy Estates located near the Sales Barn in Carrollton.

While attempting to serve the warrant, an individual on a four-wheeler passed their location. Detectives were aware of several ATVs stolen in the overnight hours. After making contact with the rider, they realized the four-wheeler was stolen.

Investigators were able to recover two more ATVs from the rider’s residence along with a pound of marijuana and a confirmed stolen firearm out of Villa Rica.

The suspects responsible for the thefts may be connected to other incidents in the Carroll County area, including several aggravated assaults and gang activity, according to law enforcement officials. Those cases are still open and active. Charges could be filed in those cases once the investigations are completed.

Several offenders have been arrested and charged as follows:

Ulysses Jontae Houston, age 19 (1 Count RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act), 1 Count Burglary, 1 Count tampering with evidence, 11 Counts of Theft by Receiving Stolen Property)
