A Cobb County teenager has been indicted by a grand jury after he was accused of breaking into 10 cars in southwest Cherokee County in September.

According to an indictment filed Tuesday, Zion Jackson, 19, entered 10 cars, one of which he accessed by breaking into a garage, Sept. 1 in the Centennial Lakes neighborhood off Highway 92 near Acworth. There, he is accused of taking two guns and a credit union card from the vehicles, per court documents.

Jackson was indicted on 10 counts of entering auto, two counts of theft and one count of financial transaction card theft. He has an arraignment hearing scheduled May 12, according to the Cherokee County court clerk’s office.

He was arrested in January by Cobb County police on separate charges including entering auto, theft, assault on an officer and hit and run, jail records show. He remains in the Cobb jail without bond. His arrest warrant in Cherokee is still active, according to the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office.
