An Atlanta man has been charged in connection with four smash-and-grab convenience store burglaries on the north end of Hall County, authorities said Tuesday.
The Hall County Sheriff's Office obtained warrants for Mario Pass' arrest on July 25. He was arrested last Thursday, October 5, according to a news release from Sheriff's Lt. Scott Ware.
Pass, 29, allegedly targeted the businesses in August of 2016, in each case smashing holes to gain access to the back of the buildings. Each crime resulted in stolen merchandise and more than $500.00 damage, according to Ware.
Authorities said Pass burglarized Ravion Enterprises on White Sulphur Road on August 7. The remaining three burglaries happened on August 26; at Vernon Market on Mount Vernon Road, Clermont Food Mart on U.S. 129/Cleveland Highway and the Stop-By store, also on U.S. 129/Cleveland Highway.
"No bond has been set for Pass at this time," Ware wrote. "These cases remain under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff's Office."
Pass is officially charged with four counts of smash-and-grab burglary.
