Gainesville, GA man charged with thefts

By Jeremy Richie

February 15, 2013

With the assistance of a new pawnshop ordinance, Gainesville police charged a man Tuesday with thefts reported over the past two months, officials said.

Jeremy A. Richie, 35, of Gainesville is accused of stealing items from cars and exchanging the merchandise for cash at several local pawnshops, police said. He already was in custody on an unrelated probation violation charge when the new charges were brought.

The new ordinance requires that sellers be fingerprinted and photographed and it provides that data electronically to law enforcement. The LeadsOnline reporting system also includes data reported from scrap metal processors, secondhand stores and Internet drop-off stores.

One theft involved a firearm that was pawned and then recovered by the Criminal Investigations Division.

Richie is charged with five counts of theft by receiving stolen property, five counts of theft by deception and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, in addition to charges stemming from violation of his probation.

At his first appearance in Hall County Court, a $17,000 conditional bond was set. He remained at Hall County Jail and he has a committal hearing scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 27.
