Nine auto burglaries are believed to be solved when Warren County Sheriff’s deputies, with assistance from the public, arrested a suspect.
“We were plagued in the county with some auto burglaries that began back in July. The first was reported around July 11th through August 9th,” said Sheriff Pace. “Some very alert patrol deputies had a call of suspicious vehicles off of Fisher Ferry road responded to the scene. They arrested Tylon Williams, 30, arrested him actually in the process of breaking into an automobile.”
Sheriff Pace went on to affirm, “Pursuant to his arrest we have solved auto burglaries that date back to July. He is charged right now, he just had an initial appearance, on nine auto burglaries, one attempted auto burglary and one grand larceny. We recovered about $1,900 cash, two billfolds and are still going through an inventory of items after searching his vehicle and searching a residence where he has been living.”
In addition to the Warren County auto burglary charges, Williams had an outstanding warrant from drug court that was a couple of years old. Williams failed to report to drug court as ordered so he is being held in the Warren County jail without bond. The investigation is ongoing.
“As investigators were investigating these auto burglaries, they did a lot of door-to-door collecting video from doorbell cameras, security systems,” said Sheriff Pace. “If the public that’s listening is aware of auto burglaries that took place in or around their own neighborhood, we would encourage them to look at that video and see if they see any suspicious activity.”
Sheriff Pace stated most of the thefts occurred between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. beginning on July 11 through Aug. 9.See a typo? Report it here.
