DUNWOODY, Ga. -- Dunwoody police have arrested two people suspected in at least three recent burglaries.

Timothy Woznick, 30, has been charged with burglary, while 27-year-old Michele Honaker has been charged with theft by receiving stolen property. Both suspects are currently in the DeKalb County Jail.
