While large public demonstrations have dissipated in recent weeks, the Atlanta Police Department continues to investigate and arrest people seen committing crimes in the thick of the protests.
In a Facebook post Thursday, APD announced that 12 people had been identified, arrested and charged with crimes committed during the demonstrations across Atlanta earlier this summer. The list of arrests included seven people accused of looting the Nike store at Lenox Square and a man charged with arson, property damage and inciting a riot May 29. The other four arrests were previously unreported.
The latest occurred Monday as Atlanta police took 22-year-old Desai Billingsley into custody and charged him with felony burglary and felony interference with government property.
