A Florence man faces multiple charges after police say he was caught breaking into vehicles early Thursday.
Jacoby Gilchrist, 20, is charged with three counts of unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle, two theft of property counts, possession of a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Florence police said officers responded to a breaking and entering call on Orchard Road in the Orchard Mills Subdivision about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
A man told police he heard a loud noise and then found his vehicle had been broken into.
He gave officers video from his Ring doorbell. That video showed a subject breaking out the vehicle’s window.
Police then found the subject, now identified as Gilchrist – as well as other vehicles that either had been broken into or entered illegally.
Gilchrist’s bond was set at $23,500.
