DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - Decatur County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man after he confessed to breaking into over 20 different vehicles.

Javarrus Lawrence is now being charged with entering autos and parole violation.

Lawrence told investigators he stole cash and small electronics from cars in 22 different locations around the county.

Investigator Ken Davidson with the Decatur County Sheriff's Office said, “We're looking forward to closing out all these cases and getting him off the street where he can't be doing that. He'll be in jail during the Christmas season so it's one less criminal we have to worry about.”

Davidson said they're still investigating, and Lawrence could be responsible for even more car break-ins.
