Stolen laptop leads police to Bonaire teen

The Internet provider address from a laptop stolen from a Warner Robins home led police detectives straight to the accused burglar, police said.

Jeremy Shelley, 18, of Bonaire, is accused of the April 6 burglary at 209 Strawbridge Lane and the April 9 burglary at 301 Strawbridge Lane, according to a Warner Robins police news release.

Shelley used the laptop, which contained Absolute Software, or “LoJack,” at his Bonaire home, and the IP address was captured and traced, the release said.

A search of the home by police turned up stolen property from both burglaries and burglary tools, the release said. Shelley pried open a window at each of the homes to get in, the release said.

Shelley was being held Wednesday at the Houston County jail, according to the release.
