A Gainesville man faces 10 additional second-degree burglary charges after an initial arrest last month, according to authorities.

Terry Paul Stancil, 18, was charged in January with three counts of entering autos and four second-degree burglary charges.

A homeowner in the Chestatee area told police Jan. 22 that he saw three men entering a car. A Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the area and detained the three suspects in the vehicle.

Christian Kirk, 18, of Gainesville, and Curtis Potter, 30, of Memphis, Tenn., and Stancil were charged with entering autos.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said last month investigators believe the trio are allegedly responsible “for at least seven entering autos in the neighborhood and potentially more.”

“Our south end investigators were able to link him to multiple incidents in the south end of the county,” Bailes wrote in an email.

Stancil was charged Thursday with the 10 second-degree burglary counts.

According to the Hall County Superior Court clerk’s office, no legal representation had been entered into the Comprehensive Justice Information System for Stancil.

Stancil is being held in the Hall County Jail without bond and has a bond hearing set for today.
