Update, June 22: Dozens of charges were filed against a Union City man following an investigation into numerous entering auto cases in South Hall, according to authorities. 

Quaves Jermaine Sterling, 22, was booked into the Hall County Jail Wednesday, June 17. 

The investigation started late Tuesday, June 16, in the Reunion residential development after numerous entering auto calls. 

“According to the initial examination, Sheriff’s Office detectives believe there were approximately 50 such cases in the development, with roughly 30 credit and/or debit cards among the stolen items,” Booth wrote in a news release. 

More than 50 charges were listed on the Sheriff’s Office’s jail database, including burglary, entering auto to commit theft, financial transaction card theft and possession of firearm/knife in commission of a crime. Authorities did not clarify the possession of firearm/knife charge when contacted by The Times. 

Booth said one of the entering auto cases involved a vehicle owned by the city of Gainesville. He added Sterling allegedly conspired with a second person on the entering autos and burglary. 

That person has been identified by law enforcement but is not in custody. 
Defense attorney Chris van Rossem declined to comment.
