Taylorsville Police Officer Gordon Knight said this morning, “We got our man.” Knight was referring to the suspect in a series of heists that have victimized local auto dealers.
Early this morning Taylorsville Police along with the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office arrested 55 year old Jerry Randall Greene of Wilkes County. Greene is charged with multiple counts of larceny following incidents at two Taylorsville auto lots.
Over the course of the past weekend aluminum wheels were stolen from a pickup truck at Hoyle’s Auto Sales on West Main Street. On July 23rd a similar incident was reported at TC Automotive on Main Street. A suspect was plainly captured on security video during that theft and the images appear to be that of the suspect.
Greene is also charged with driving while license revoked. The investigation is continuing and more charges are possible locally as well as neighboring counties.
