Shortly after 5pm, Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell released the following statement about the arrest of a suspect involved in a theft.

“We received a report around 3:20PM this afternoon about this gentleman trying to steal power equipment from a home near Country Club Road. He’s obviously not heard about how effective my patrol deputies are. He’s now IN CUSTODY at 5:00PM.

The only thing he can steal now is the beans off another inmates lunch tray. “

Good Job Guys!!
