One of four entering-auto suspects captured by Hall County Sheriff's Office

By Staff
FLOWERY BRANCH - Hall County deputies responding to reports of suspicious activity in the early morning hours of June 14th discovered a series of vehicles that were broken into in southern Hall County.
 
One deputy spotted the suspects' vehicle on Windgate Drive and used his patrol car to create a roadblock according to Sheriff's Office spokesman Derreck Booth. "He pulled the patrol car into the roadway, blocking the roadway, and turned on the blue lights," Booth said.
 
"But the suspect vehicle tried to pull around the patrol vehicle and crashed into a tree," Booth added.
 
At that point four individuals exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Deputies arrested one of the suspects, Malik Javon Gray, 20, of Atlanta, following a brief foot chase.
 
A search of the immediate area with the aid of the Flowery Branch and Braselton Police departments failed to produce the remaining three suspects. A Georgia Department of Corrections Canine Unit also responded but without any success.
 
Deputies determined that the wrecked car used by the suspects was reported stolen in Paulding County. In addition to the car, they recovered stolen items, including two handguns and several electronic devices.
 
The investigation revealed that the suspects had entered four vehicles in the area that morning. Sheriff’s Office Investigators are actively working the case, including a review of footage from a registered camera in the Sheriff’s Office Citizens’ Watch program.
 
Gray is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, criminal attempt of entering auto and obstruction. He was released from the Hall County Jail on $12,700 bond on Friday, June 15.
