BEDFORD COUNTY, VA -

The Bedford County Sheriff's Office arrested a Roanoke woman, in connection with a series of home break-ins that several other suspects from Roanoke have been arrested in.

Officers say they arrested 20-year-old Tanisha Nelson, of Roanoke, on Tuesday, and charged her with five counts of grand larceny, and two counts of larceny of a firearm.

Investigators believe Nelson took part in five burglaries in Bedford County between December 24, 2012 and January 3, 2013.  Sheriff Mike Brown previously described the suspects in the case as acting like a gang.

Another suspect in the break-ins, Nathan Nelms, still has not been caught as of Thursday evening.
