Suspect in numerous area thefts is charged in Gadsden County
One of two suspects in a series of multi-county burglaries is in custody at the Gadsden County Jail after he turned himself in Friday.
Keldrick Wilson, 17, is being charged as an adult and is facing one count each of burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief, according to Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Ulysses Jenkins.
Jenkins said Wilson is being held for Liberty County, where he is a suspect in eight break-ins.
Wilson and 18-year-old Xavier Parks were arrested earlier this month after they drove up at a Chattahoochee convenience store where several plainclothes investigators had gathered to discuss the case.
The pair were apprehended after investigators recognized the car and saw that one of the suspects was wearing the clothing a witness had described.
Both were charged that day in Jackson County on one count of armed burglary, one count of burglary and two counts of grand theft after items taken from break-ins that morning were found in their car.
A few days after his arrest, Wilson was released on bond from Jackson County.
