COVINGTON, Ga. – An 18-year-old woman remains behind bars nearly a week after her arrest by Newton County Sheriff’s Office deputies on criminal trespass and entering auto charges following an early morning crime spree last Wednesday.
According to a NCSO incident report, Nia Davis was taken into custody around 5 a.m. June 13 by deputies responding to the report of a suspicious person sitting in the chairs and attempting to open the doors at The Benton House on Dearing Road. After her arrest, deputies were able to connect Davis to the break-ins.
She faces charges on 14 counts of criminal trespass, 13 counts of entering an automobile with the intent to commit a crime, and one count of possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
Davis and a juvenile accomplice reportedly broke into cars parked at residences on River Walk Farm Parkway, Homestead Way, Thrasher Way and Sagebrush Trail stealing a laptop, GPS units, smartphone chargers and a gift card.
A shoe was reportedly found at one of the crime scenes and seized as evidence.
The juvenile suspect was arrested just after 7 a.m. the same day after deputies responding to a report of an unconscious person found him asleep in the driveway on River Walk Farm Parkway with several book bags on his back. According to a report, he had the ID of a Homestead Way victim in his possession when he was arrested.
A NCSO spokesperson said the recovered items were returned to the owners.
