Man Arrested For Stealing $2 Soda

A Smithfield man was arrested at a local convenience store after he allegedly stole a soft drink valued at $2.09.

Around 5:15am Monday, Smithfield Police responded to the Sheetz on East Market Street after a clerk reported a customer entered the store, grabbed a 2 liter Mountain Dew and walked out the door without paying.

Officers said they located Kurt Charles Struble, 40, of Dail Street in the business parking lot.

Struble was arrested and charged with misdemeanor larceny. While being processed into jail, police learned Struble had a outstanding worthless check warrant which was served on him. He was given a $300 bond on the charges.

    Sheetz really going to call the cops for $2. It cost way much more for the cops to go out there in the first place. They get that 2L for like 70 cents anyways.
