A Peachtree City man has been charged with 30 counts of entering auto incidents that occurred during the early morning hours of June 24 at numerous residences in the Glenloch Village area. More charges may be forthcoming.
David McElroy, 19, of Ridgeview Court in Glenloch Village was charged with 30 counts of entering auto and one count of criminal use of an article with altered identification mark for possessing a firearm with a tampered serial number, said Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Matt Myers, adding that additional charges from previous related incidents are expected.
A search of McElroy’s residence revealed four firearms, cash, coins, several knives, a stun gun and other property believed to be taken in the thefts, said Myers.
Myers said officers in the early morning hours of June 24 responded to a report of an entering auto incident on Scatterfoot Drive in the Glenloch Village area of the city.
“During a canvass of the area, officers found vehicles at several other addresses that had also been entered,” said Myers. “While still checking the neighborhood, officers received an additional complaint from Ridgeview Court, where the complainant reported seeing a teenage white male putting items into his bedroom window from the outside and entering vehicles that do not belong to him.”
Myers said officers responded to the area and subsequently identified McElroy as the suspect.
