Gwinnett County Police Detectives, in collaboration with a nearby business, have successfully apprehended a burglary suspect responsible for a string of storage unit thefts in the Norcross and Lilburn area. The investigation, which commenced in early February following a series of break-ins, faced initial challenges due to limited leads. However, thanks to the cooperation of the Vice President of Public Storage, crucial information was provided to aid the investigation.

Through diligent efforts, detectives identified the suspect as 27-year-old Jairo Humberto Gudiel Villeda from Tucker. It was discovered that Jairo had been using fake identities and fraudulent financial means to acquire storage units, subsequently using them as targets for his burglaries.

On February 29, utilizing surveillance from Flock cameras across the county, detectives pinpointed Jairo’s presence near a Public Storage facility on Beaver Ruin Road in unincorporated Lilburn. Swift action by law enforcement officers led to Jairo’s arrest as he was caught in the act of burglarizing a storage unit. Subsequently, he was taken into custody and booked at the Gwinnett County Jail.

Jairo faces multiple charges including burglary, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, criminal trespass, loitering and prowling, identity theft, and possession of methamphetamine.
