Arrest Made in Burglary Cases Involving Green SUV

Police still seeking additional suspects.

One man has been arrested and two others are being sought in connection with a series of burglaries in the Dacula area.

The burglaries, which began the week of Oct. 12, involved witness reports of a dark green sport utility vehicle. Gwinnett County Police were able to identify the vehicle as a 1998 green GMC Jimmy. A description of the vehicle and the tag number were distributed as a BOLO (Be on the lookout) to uniform officers.

A detective developed a lead on the identity of the driver through the use of the department’s pawn shop transaction database. As a result of the investigation, warrants for burglary and theft by deception were obtained against Darryl Kevin Aiken, 21, of Loganville, in connection with two pawn transactions of stolen property.   

On Oct. 23, a Gwinnett County Police officer stopped the GMC Jimmy listed as the subject of the BOLO. Aiken, who was driving the vehicle, was taken into custody. After obtaining a search warrant, officers discovered a stolen firearm and 92 grams of marijuana in the vehicle. According to the investigator’s report, police are still trying to locate the owners of other property that was found in the vehicle.

Aiken is currently being held in the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.
