Deltona, FL-Update: VCSO says a second suspect is in custody in a Deltona home invasion. 23-year-old Charles Holliday was arrested Sunday night. He is the brother of the younger suspect. Earlier reporting follows:
A 15-year-old suspect was arrested and charged Friday for his part in a home invasion that took place last week in Deltona. The juvenile, Jackson Holliday, is charged with home invasion robbery with a weapon, aggravated battery, kidnapping, grand theft auto and grand theft for his part in the crime. An arrest warrant was also obtained for his 23-year-old brother, Charles, in last week’s home invasion in Deltona.
Investigators say information from the victims led them to Jackson Holliday. He was an acquaintance of 16-year-old victim Christian Jung. Jackson had visited at the house several times and always had an interest in Christian’s sneaker collection. Along with cash, the items stolen during the robbery included seven pairs of high-end basketball shoes.
Bloody fingerprints on a wall in the victim’s home were identified by a Sheriff’s Office fingerprint analyst as belonging to Charles Holliday. This led to a search warrant for the Hollidays’ home where investigators recovered several pieces of evidence. Jackson admitted he had played a part in the home invasion.
Anyone with information on 23-year-old Charles Holliday’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, toll-free, at (888) 277-TIPS. Callers to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $5,000.
