Three Cars, 2 ATVs Among Stolen Items Found

A Cherokee County man is out on bond after authorities say they found more than 200 stolen items — including three luxury cars and dozens of commercial-grade tools — in his garage.
Deputies arrested Christopher James Antkowiak, 34, on July 17 and charged him with five counts of receiving stolen property, Sgt. Jay Baker said Friday. Antkowiak was released on $32,000 bond the next day.

Baker said deputies found dozens of commercial power tools, three Mercedes vehicles, two ATVs, a tree chipper and dozens of boxes marked "Habitat for Humanity" on his property on Holbrook Campground Road.

Deputies went to Antkowiak's house to investigate a report of a stolen electric transformer, Baker said. Some of the stolen goods — including the cars — have been traced to the Milton area and returned. But most of the items remained in a sheriff's office warehouse Friday, Baker said.
Investigators are trying to locate the owners of the stolen items. For more information, call the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office at 770-928-0239.
