Arrest made in multiple Spalding County entering auto cases

The Spalding County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest in a series of entering auto cases.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, deputies responded to multiple reports of vehicles that were entered during late October. Many of these incidents occurred in south Spalding.

A homeowner provided investigators with a video, which was posted on social media.

Investigators were also able to link a vehicle and a potential suspect to the incidents.

This led to the issuance of a search warrant for a 2017 Nissan Altima that was allegedly placed at the scene.

Authorities say multiple stolen items associated with reports in Spalding and Pike counties were recovered from the Nissan.

Officers of the Griffin Police Department also recovered two handguns that were reported stolen in earlier entering auto cases.

The Sheriff’s Office reports those firearms are being processed for fingerprints.

The suspect in these entering auto cases has been identified as 19-year-old Domon Chrishone Kendrick, who has been charged with nine counts of theft by receiving stolen property.

Kendrick was arrested and posted bond on eight initial charges. An additional warrant was obtained for theft by receiving, and Kendrick has since been apprehended by the SCSO Fugitive Apprehension Division.

“We would like to thank the Griffin Police Department and the Pike County Sheriff’s Office for their timely assistance,” Dix said. “Griffin PD officers actually recovered two of the weapons that were reported stolen. Pike County deputies were instrumental in assisting and working with our investigators in discussing incidents in Pike County.”
Officials say the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are possible.
