Teen, juvenile charged in electronics thefts

THOMASVILLE — An alert business owner who was suspicious about an offer to purchase electronic equipment took action that led to the quick arrest of two suspects.

On Thursday night, 10 vehicles were entered at three Thomasville apartment complexes.

“Vehicles were entered at Greentree Apartments, Quail Rise Apartments and Wildwood,” said Lt. Wade Glover, commander of the Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.

iPads, global-positioning devices and loose change were taken from the vehicles, none of which were locked.

“The thieves went to a local business to sell some of the electrical equipment,” Glover said.

When the business owner contacted TPD, detectives traced the equipment back to the apartment complexes.

The investigation led to Aquavis Watson, 17, 417 W, Walcott St., and a 15-year-old Thomasville male.

The juvenile is charged with several counts of entering auto.

Watson is charged with theft by receiving stolen property.

“He (Watson) was with the juvenile trying to sell the stolen property,” Glover said.

Almost all of the stolen items have been recovered.

Senior reporter Patti Dozier can be reached at (229) 226-2400, ext. 1820.
