Forsyth County authorities have arrested a man from Gwinnett County in connection with a spree of theft entering autos that targeted two neighborhoods in southwest Forsyth in July of 2016.
The FCN previously reported that on July 1, 2016, more than 20 unlocked vehicles in the Evans Farm and Prather Farm subdivisions off Canton Highway and Post Road were entered overnight, and multiple wallets, purses, laptops and other electronic devices were stolen.
According to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, Terriontae Demario Robinson of Stone Mountain, one of three suspects in the case, was arrested by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office on August 2 after making bond in Fulton County last week.
Rainwater said that Robinson has spent the last two years behind bars in Gwinnett and Fulton counties on charges of theft entering auto and criminal trespass.
He said that their investigation into the spree of thefts uncovered fingerprints that allegedly link Robinson to a number of the vehicles from the spree.
Rainwater added that Robinson is being charged with burglary because he allegedly entered a garage to steal from a vehicle.
Two other suspects, Darnell Finley and Telvan Tillis, faced charges relating to this incident in 2016.
Robinson has been charged with 14 felony counts of theft entering autos and one felony count of burglary.
He has been booked into the Forsyth County Jail under a bond of $227,720.
