Timothy David Williams, 40, of Marietta was arrested last week and charged with one felony count of theft by taking and is being held at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center. Bond was set at $250,000, according to a July 21 arrest warrant.
Williams was arrested on Aug. 2 at the intersection of Cobb Parkway and South Cobb Drive. His jail book-in sheet lists Dobbins Air Reserve Base as his employer.
The warrant says Williams stole the trailer containing 700 Sony PlayStation 3s at 2215 D & B Drive on Oct. 29, 2010.
A single PlayStation 3 console has a retail value of up to $300.
The warrant says Williams sold several of the gaming systems to various people, who told police his car was “filled to capacity with PS3s when they purchased said items.”
The systems recovered from those who bought them were identified as part of the stolen load based on their serial numbers, the warrant says.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman Mike Fordham said he could not comment on the case because it is still open.
“Once we’re through with the investigation, we’ll turn it over to the (Cobb) DA for prosecution,” he said. “There’s no indication of it going to federal court.”
