Concerned citizens have led to the apprehension of two Entering Auto subjects over a couple of days.
On September 21st, 2019, ACCPD Officers responded to a call from a concerned citizen regarding a black male wearing a blue windbreaker and athletic shorts rummaging through their vehicle on Meigs Street. The area was searched, and officers located a subject matching the description. Initially, the subject ran but officers apprehended him after a short foot chase. The subject, 20-year-old Rodrick Jeff of Monroe, was transported to the county jail.
Then, at approximately 22:32 hours on September 22nd, 2019, ACCPD Officers responded to another Entering Auto call from a concerned citizen on Gail Dr. The citizen found his vehicle had been entered into and confronted the offender. ACCPD arrived and detained the subject. The subject, 23-year-old Traquavious Hillsman from Athens was charged with Entering Auto. He also had two active warrants and he was transported to the county jail.
