Gabriyah Nakol Jones teamed up with her underage brother and two other male juveniles Jan. 21 to burglarize a Conner Road residence, according to testimony today in Columbus Recorder's Court.
Jones, 18, of Columbus pleaded not guilty to burglary and theft by deception charges related to the incident, which police believe happened around 1:25 p.m. She was ordered to return to the Muscogee County Jail under bonds totaling $5,250.
Columbus Police said someone witnessed Jones sitting in the get-away vehicle as the boys burglarized a residence in the 4500 block of Conner Road. She drove them, away from the scene and to the pawn shop after they took three televisions, two Playstation 4 gaming systems and two laptop computers from the home, authorities testified.
According to police, Jones admitted to pawning what she knew to be a stolen television in exchange for $40 at the A-1 Pawn Shop at 3515 Victory Drive. That is the only stolen property that has been recovered, the testifying officer said this morning.
At 12 a.m. Tuesday, Jones was taken into custody at her home in the 4800 block of Conner Road. Warrants were issued this morning for the remaining suspects.
During the hearing, the testifying officer announced plans to apprehend the juvenile suspects after court.
Jones didn't testify in court.
