Florence man arrested, tied to multiple crimes
FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – Florence Police arrested a man who they have tied to a string of break-ins, and now, a robbery.
Police charged 24-year-old Brandon Lee Hollis with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, theft of property, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, plus fraudulent use of a credit card.
Investigators said Hollis broke into two vehicles Sunday night and then tried to use a credit card stolen from one of the cars at a convenience store the following morning.
They recovered some of the victim’s property from the vehicle burglary on Hollis when they arrested him Monday.
After reviewing the surveillance video from a Shell gas station robbery Sunday night, Florence Police investigators tied Hollis to that crime as well. Money was taken from behind the counter and the register.
They arrested Hollis again Tuesday and charged him with Robbery 1st.
