MORRISTOWN (WATE) - Five juveniles and two adults have been charged in a string of Hamblen County home invasions.

All seven suspects are charged with aggravated burglary and theft of property. Hamblen County detectives say they were able to close six cases with the arrests.

Officials say the suspects began their spree in July 2013, stealing jewelry, TVs and weapons from multiple homes.

It is believed they are also linked to robberies in Grainger County. Officials there say a witness to a recent burglary identified the same juvenile suspects.

Efrain Pascual Alonzo, 20, is charged with three counts of aggravated burglary and one count of theft of property over $1,000. He is being held on $75,000 bond.

Jeffery Lowe, 18, is charged with one count of aggravated burglary and one count of theft of property over $1,000. He is being held on $25,000 bond.

The juveniles arrested are not being identified.

More arrests may be made as the investigation continues.
