37-year-old Aaron Nettles was charged with theft of property and burglary of a motor vehicle after police deduced he broke into a woman’s car by checking the name of the person who sold her stolen phone.

On October 19, the victim, Evelyn Hollis, reported that her vehicle was burglarized from a parking garage at Centennial Hospital, located at 2300 Patterson Street, the night before.

Per the affidavit, the passenger side window was broken out between 6-7 p.m., and her black iPhone XR and purse were both stolen from the vehicle. It was discovered her stolen phone was sold at an ecoATM by Aaron Nettles at 7:56 p.m. Due to the narrow timeframe between the theft and the phone being sold, police had probable cause that Aaron Nettles was the one who committed both crimes.
