Flowery Branch man charged for stealing items from cars in west Forsyth neighborhood

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office recently took out 29 felony warrants for a Flowery Branch man accused of stealing items from vehicles in a west Forsyth subdivision in mid-May.

Jessie Holloman, who is currently being held in the Gwinnett County Jail on similar charges, is accused of entering nearly 30 vehicles in the Fieldstone subdivision sometime during the night of May 11, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

All the cars Holloman allegedly entered were unlocked, and items stolen included sunglasses, credit cards, a Bear Butt hammock and numerous other items, incident reports said.

“We matched him to most of the break-ins through his fingerprints,” Rainwater said. “We worked with the City of Cumming police, the Gwinnett Police Department and the Army Corps [of Engineers] in identifying him, and neighbors also had videotape we looked at. He also used a stolen credit card from one of the cars at a department store, so we have him on video surveillance on that one.

“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.”

Rainwater said Holloman is currently being held in Gwinnett for separate entering auto charges and will be transported to the Forsyth County Jail, “if he can make bond” in Gwinnett.

Holloman has no prior record in Forsyth, though court records in Gwinnett dating to 2015 show he had previously been arrested for entering autos.
