A Flowery Branch man wanted on outstanding warrants in for entering autos was turned in Tuesday night by his grandfather, police said.

Jessie Gray Holloman, 21, of Flowery Branch had just been paroled in June after a previous sentence for breaking into vehicles. He was suspected in the theft of firearms out of cars in several subdivisions, Flowery Branch Police investigator Robin Kemp said.

Kemp said there were also two parole warrants issued for Holloman.

Police were investigating several cases between Labor Day and Thursday, Sept. 5 in the areas of Victoria Court, Clarkstone Drive and Beacon Ridge.

“Firearms and possibly other items were taken,” Kemp wrote in an email.

Holloman was paroled June 18, just months after he was given a 10-year sentence in Hall County Superior Court.

Holloman was convicted on seven counts of entering an automobile and two counts of financial transaction card fraud between May 6-10 of 2017 in Flowery Branch.

Judge David Burroughs sentenced him to 10 years, with the first two years behind bars.

Police in Flowery Branch are seeking the public's help in identifying a suspect they say stole firearms out of several autos between Labor Day and Sept. 5, 2019.

The rest was to be served on probation, and Holloman received credit for time served between May 2017 and October 2018 as well as some time this year.

He was also ordered to pay $815 in restitution.

“Our investigation continues as we still have other victims we believe were impacted by Holloman’s criminal activities. We also need to try and locate the firearms that were taken,”

Kemp wrote in an email.
