Three other suspects involved in the burglary investigation at Highway 29 Mini Storage were named Monday by the Troup County Sheriff’s Office.

Cynthia Deisher, Jason Leftwich and Delilah Phelps were recently named by TCSO for two counts of second-degree burglary. On the morning of July 31, investigators were called out to the property and made contact with a partner of the storage company, who stated it appeared that the suspects broke into 20 storage units.

TCSO said warrants were issued for Tommy Mobley, Deisher, Leftwich and Phelps. Mobley, Deisher and Leftwich have been arrested, but Phelps has not been located.

The victim told police that the suspects trespassed on the property at around 2 a.m. the night before by cutting a hole in the chain link fence with bolt cutters.

According to an incident report from TCSO, the units were also broken into by breaking the locks with bolt cutters.

Surveillance footage from a neighboring business revealed footage of two males wearing masks and gloves walking around the property. According to TCSO, the warrants said they entered the storage buildings located at 3511 Hogansville Road and took a Ridig nail gun valued at $120, a Bosch router valued at $150, several hats and two plastic totes containing several Beanie Babies valued at approximately $4,200.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Phelps is asked to call TCSO at (706) 883-1616.
