Dalton burglar and entering auto suspect arrested after being caught on several surveillance cameras

According to a Dalton Police Department incident report, On December 29th, 2022, Officer Black was assisting Officer Walker and Officer Selby with an entering auto investigation involving multiple houses. Officers were originally dispatched to the area in reference to a male prowling the area wearing a masked hood. The caller stated that a male subject walked onto his side door porch and attempted to enter his home by trying to open the door. The victim showed officers a video that depicted a male subject wearing gray shorts, a dark jacket, and a hoodie over his face attempting to open the door on the east side of his residence. At that point, other neighbors began advising they were also victims of various crimes from the same male subject. Another victim had their unlocked Ford Bronco inside the garage broken into. Officers located several more victims who had their vehicles gone through and more video footage of the male subject. Officers Jones spotted the possible suspect leaving the area and initiated a traffic stop. Officers were able to confirm the suspect’s description from the video and identified him as Bryan Romero, 21, of Dalton. According to the report, nothing was reported stolen by any of the victims. Romero would eventually admit to the crimes. Romero was transported to the Whitfield County Jail, charged with burglary (no forced entry, non-residence), entering an automobile with the intent to commit theft or felony, loitering/prowling, and criminal attempt to commit a felony.
