THOMASVILLE, N.C. — A Thomasville man was arrested this week in connection with more than a dozen vehicle break-ins from across the city. 

In a news release distributed Friday, police said Justin Cullins, 25, of Oakmeadow Lane, was arrested on 28 felony charges including 13 counts of breaking-and-entering a vehicle, 13 counts of larceny from a vehicle, and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense. 

Cullins was arrested after police began investigating the break-ins in the Meadowood region on Tuesday.  In search of stolen GPS units, police said they went to the Thomasville Pawn shop.  Detectives recovered two units that had been stolen and then identified Cullins as a suspect. 

After finding and interviewing Cullins, police said they were able to link Cullins to 14 vehicle break-ins across the region.  Most of the stolen property was recovered, police said. 

No other details were provided.
