FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A teen who once bragged on Instagram about stealing two high-priced Porsche SUVs from the company's Atlanta headquarters is going to prison. Court records indicate Nehemiah Brewer pleaded guilty in Fulton County Superior Court to a long list of violent crimes including armed robbery.
"I am glad it [Brewer's crime spree] came to an end without anyone getting hurt physically," said Jason Sandlin, of Coweta County, who was a 2016 victim of Nehemiah Brewer.
The 20-year-old was still a teenager then when he was one of three men who broke into Sandlin’s truck at a Fulton County business. When Sandlin confronted them, he found himself facing a gun.
"I could have very easily lost my life," Sandlin said.
This past week, a Fulton County judge sentenced Brewer to 15 years in prison for a long list of violent crimes including armed robbery and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime.
And he could get more time.
In a case still pending according to police, Brewer was allegedly captured on surveillance video in January of 2017 climbing aboard a Porsche car hauler to steal a high priced SUV right off the truck. And allegedly as the truck driver was waiting for police, Brewer sneaked back and stole another. The combined value of the two Porsche SUVs was $200,000, according to police.
Hapeville Police said they also arrested him after Brewer allegedly bragged about the thefts on Instagram.
Police said Brewer was captured for those crimes in 2017 after leading police on a 100-mile-per-hour chase down Interstate 75 in which he crashed into five vehicles.
Again, police said he was just 19. Jason Sandlin said he prays for him. And said time appears to be running out for Brewer.
"He won't make it another 20 years without going to prison or ending up dead the way he is going," he said.
According to court records, Brewer will have to serve five of the 15 years in prison. The next five would be on probation and another five might remainder suspended if he behaves himself.
