THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - A Thomas County woman is being recognized after sheriff's deputies say she helped crack not one, but two, burglary cases.

Diane Singletary was able to provide Thomas County investigators the make, model, and license plate number of a vehicle she saw at her mother's house.

Police were able to arrest Robert Wohlford and Roberson Lance in connection to that burglary, and one that occurred on Friday at a home on Salem Road.

Sheriff's office officials say witnesses often recount detailed descriptions of suspects, but not license plates, which in this case, was what helped get the two behind bars.

"It's tough to get three letters and four numbers on there correct," said Steve Jones, with the Thomas Co. Sheriff's Office. "It's so rare you get a full description the way we got it."

According to officials, the suspects are now charged with two counts of burglary.

The sheriff's office is looking to recover tools that were stolen in the burglary on Friday. If you bought any tools from the two men, they are not looking to press charges, but would like to hear from you.
