The local sheriff’s office has arrested a Burlington resident for thefts from construction sites after a search of his home reportedly turned up thousands of dollars in stolen tools and supplies.

Jerry Lynn Coleman has since been charged with nine felony counts for his alleged larcenies – which include the theft of construction supplies from Kernodle Landing, a subdivision off of Gerringer Mill Road.

According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, the 40-year-old white male was identified as a suspect in the Kernodle Landing thefts shortly after the crimes were reported on May 17.

The sheriff’s office went on to obtain a warrant to search Coleman’s home at 1071 South Riverview Drive in Burlington. During the search, deputies reportedly found about $6,000 in construction supplies and equipment that had been stolen from several locations in northern Alamance County.
