During the investigation Detective Talbot remembered a similar case involving an individual who lived in a nearby residence. He had charged the man with the theft of a mini-van that was discovered in a field on Tripple H Lane. Jeremiah Austin Helms, 22, of 173 Tripple H Lane, Lincolnton, NC was convicted in the case and is currently on probation and required to wear an ankle monitor.
Several items from the current vehicle theft were discovered in the family garage. Probation investigators provided Detective Talbot with GPS data that placed Helms at the victim’s address when the car was taken and where the vehicle was found. The suspect was located at his residence on June 1, 2020 and taken into custody without incident. He was charged with felony larceny of a motor vehicle and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $12,000 secured bond.
The vehicle and most of the contents were returned to the owner.
