MARIETTA — A Powder Springs man is accused of stealing nearly 500 bottles of wine from a Marietta distributor and selling them to a DeKalb County liquor store.

Between April 3 and July 3, Jermaine Collins allegedly stole 492 bottles of wine, valued at $10,114, from Marietta-based Prestige Wine Wholesale and sold them to the owner of a DeKalb County liquor store, according to a warrant for his arrest.

Police said Collins confessed to the wine distributor and authorities.

Prestige Wine, a wine distributor that caters to restaurants and retail outlets in the state, did not return calls for comments.

Collins was arrested by Marietta Police on Aug. 17 on a felony theft by taking charge. He was booked into the Cobb County jail and released shortly thereafter on a $10,000 bond, according to jail records.
