2 arrested in Senoia for entering 15 autos

Two Senoia men are in custody after stealing belongings from 15 vehicles on July 29 in the Willow Dell subdivision near downtown Senoia.

Maj. Steve Tomlin said Bryan James Wilson, 23, and Adolfo Velez-Reyes, 24, were charged with multiple counts of entering auto, obstruction and loitering and prowling.

Tomlin said officers received a call at 4 a.m. about two suspicious men entering a vehicle in the subdivision. Upon arriving at the scene, one of the officers located the men traveling on foot and wearing black clothes and carrying a black duffel bag, Tomlin said.

The men spotted officers and ran into a nearby wooded area, said Tomlin, adding that officers set up a perimeter and contacted the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office to secure a K-9 unit.

The first man was located off Stallings Road at approximately 5 a.m. and the second was taken into custody in the same area at 6:30 a.m., said Tomlin.

Tomlin said items such as jewelry, cash, GPS units and other electronics were stolen from the 15 vehicles. All the vehicles were unlocked, Tomlin added.

Tomlin reminded residents to help deter this type of criminal activity by locking their vehicles.
