East Falls man charged in theft of luxury cars, TV

Posted: July 26, 2013

Police said Wednesday that they arrested a 47-year-old man with a lengthy criminal record on charges of stealing a Lamborghini and a Bentley in Northwest Philadelphia early Tuesday.

The charges against Dennis Holloman of East Falls include criminal conspiracy, indicating police are seeking at least one other bandit.

Around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Holloman allegedly assisted in a burglary in the 5400 block of Wissahickon Avenue - the block where he lived, police said.

A 24-year-old man living in an apartment complex reported that he was the owner of the yellow 2006 Lamborghini and the black 2006 Bentley, and that they had been stolen along with a 55-inch flat-screen television.

The cars later were found by police parked a couple of miles away. The TV also was later recovered.

Holloman was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft, and related offenses.

In 1996, he was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison for robbery, court records show.

In 1986 and again in 1987, Holloman was sentenced to prison for attempted burglary and other offenses.

In 1988, he was sentenced to probation for gun violations and drug dealing.

The Major Crimes Auto Squad is continuing to investigate the current case.
