Atlanta Police are looking for a man they believe is connected to recent burglaries in the Morningside and Virginia-Highland neighborhoods.

Charles Echols, 54, is wanted for parole violation and is believed to be connected to a recent string of burglaries in Virginia-Highland and Morningside.

Police have yet to say which burglaries he is connected to and are still working to match up some of the cases.

The most recent burglary was reported on Tuesday afternoon, August 21, at Briarcliff Road and Virginia Avenue. The victim reported her door was kicked in and small items such as jewelry were missing.

Anyone with any information on Echols is urged to call 911.

Echols was nabbed by our Officer Gurley. No details yet - but the important part is that he not on our streets now.
