Sheriff: Man arrested after driving stolen Maserati to movie theater

A man was arrested after he allegedly stole a 2014 Maserati and drove it to a movie theater in Clayton County.

Keithrick Williams, 41, was arrested just before 10:25 p.m. Thursday after driving from Fulton County to an AMC theater in Morrow and parking in the lot on Mt. Zion Circle for hours while he watched a movie, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

When Deputy Eddie McGhee discovered the parked car at AMC Southlake 24, he checked the hood, which was still warm, then figured the suspect was nearby, the sheriff’s office said.

He then radioed in for more deputies to join him.

Undercover agents set up, and authorities waited for hours for someone to return to the car, the sheriff’s office reported. 

Williams eventually emerged after viewing “Blade Runner 2049” and got into the car, authorities said.

He allegedly had a 9mm pistol in his passenger’s seat when he was arrested.

No injuries were reported.

Williams faces charges of theft by receiving stolen property and posessing a weapon during a crime, according to jail records.
