A man from Alpharetta was arrested for allegedly breaking into No Longer Bound, a south Forsyth addiction recovery clinic, and stealing more than $1,600 in personal belongings at the clinic, according to law enforcement.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office incident report, administration of the clinic returned to the center after the New Year’s holiday and found that several No Longer Bound (NLB) buildings and offices had been broken into, and many items, including cell phones, tablets, laptops, had been stolen.

The report states that one NLB staff member found food crumbs and mud on his office floor, his couch had possibly been slept on, and three $1 bills had been stolen, “the first dollars that the business earned at each of their stores.”

Deputies were told that the burglary had been captured on video and were able to watch as a “skinny white male in dark jeans” rummaged through the mail in the lobby of the building at about 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 30, 2018, spending about 15 minutes in the back rooms of the building.

The report states that it was discovered that the suspect also placed two phone calls, which were recorded and allegedly led deputies to the suspect’s mother.

“A message was left on one of the calls. The message was a male telling his mother that he made it into the No Longer Bound program and he would call her later,” the report states.

When the number used by the suspect was contacted by deputies, a female said that her son, Layth Aiman Kiwan, 24, of Alpharetta, had contacted her previously and was currently staying at the Country Hearth hotel in Gainesville, according to the report.

At the hotel, deputies interviewed Kiwan and arrested him in connection with the burglary after he allegedly admitted to the crime and led deputies to the location of some of the items, which had been left behind a local pharmacy.

Kiwan has been charged with felony burglary and is being held in the Forsyth County Jail under no bond, due to a probation violation.

Previously, Kiwan was charged with possession of methamphetamine and driving without a valid license in March 2018, according to court records.
