A 20-year-old man from Flowery Branch has been arrested by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office in connection with almost 30 thefts from vehicles that took place in a west Forsyth subdivision in May of 2017.

Jessie Holloman was arrested by the sheriff’s office on April 27 after spending nearly a year in the Gwinnett County Jail on similar theft charges, according to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

Rainwater said that Holloman is accused of entering 29 unlocked vehicles in the Fieldstone subdivision off of Gilbert Road during the nights of May 8 and May 11 of 2017.

“We matched him to most of the break-ins through his fingerprints,” Rainwater said to FCN at the time. “We can match him to 29 different vehicles that he entered that were all unlocked, but [being unlocked] doesn’t matter because it’s a felony to enter a car that’s not yours.”

According to incident reports from the 29 vehicle thefts, all the cars Holloman allegedly entered were unlocked and items stolen included sunglasses, credit cards, a Bear Butt hammock and numerous other items.

Rainwater said that Holloman is also facing a charge of robbery from a forcible purse snatching that took place at a Walmart in Cumming.

Holloman has been charged with 29 counts of felony theft entering automobile and one felony charge of robbery forcible purse snatching.

He has been booked into the Forsyth County Jail and currently has no bond.
