Two drivers towed away trailers full of movie production equipment, including robotic camera cranes, from businesses on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard between Jan. 11 and Jan. 14, according to police. The suspects used one dark-colored pickup truck and one white pickup truck, surveillance footage shows.

Atlanta police arrested Williams after finding the dark truck and one of the stolen trailers. None of the equipment that was in the stolen trailers has been recovered, police say. That includes a custom electric car used to mount cameras, two robotic camera cranes and a boom lift. 

There was no description available of the driver of the white truck, and there were no further details about the white truck provided by police.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
