Two home invasion suspects apprehended in same week

Indictment includes four men in burglary

JONESBORO — The fourth man suspected of being involved in a Jonesboro home invasion has joined three suspected accomplices behind bars.

Quinton Lamont Oliver was arrested Thursday and he has a $142,000 bond.

Oliver along with Ramon Gartez Blalock, Denico Deangelo Hawkins, and Quentavious Deontay Howard are charged with three counts of armed robbery, six counts of aggravated assault, burglary, two counts of making terroristic threats, three counts of possession of a weapon during a commission of a crime, two counts of theft by taking, fleeing and attempting to elude a police officer.

Blalock, who was arrested Wednesday, has an additional charge of reckless driving. Oliver has additional charges of obstruction, giving a false name, and he along with Howard have been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Howard was arrested last December and Hawkins was arrested Oct. 5, 2011, which was a couple of days following the Oct. 3, 2011, home invasion at 406 Fairway Point in Jonesboro.

Blalock, Hawkins, Howard and Oliver were indicted by a Clayton County Grand jury in August.

The men are accused of breaking into a house and terrorizing two people. They entered a bedroom and demanded money from the victims, according to the indictment.

The indictment further alleges that during the assault, they pointed a gun at their victims, threatening the female as they stole her cell phone, and taking cash from the male victim. It also says the suspects also stole a Wii gaming system.

Blalock drove the getaway car, as Clayton County Police officer S. Buice chased the suspects.

Oliver fled on foot and was able to elude capture until Thursday.

Oliver’s possession of a firearm charge stems from a conviction by Fulton County Superior Court. Oliver was convicted on April 20, 1998, of theft by receiving. He was found guilty of receiving, possessing, and transporting a .22-caliber revolver.

Howard’s possession of a firearm charge stems from a conviction in Clayton County on Feb. 17, 2011, for burglary and receiving, possessing, along with transporting a handgun.
