Stolen Sandwich Lands Man In Jail

A stolen sandwich resulted in the arrest of a 38 year-old man on criminal charges.

An employee at D.R. Wells Store at 9005 Cleveland Road called the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office at 3:00pm Monday reporting a shoplifting. The employee said the suspect had been in the business a day earlier and left without paying for a sandwich. When the man returned on Monday, he allegedly took another sandwich and left without paying.

A deputy arrived while the suspect, 38 year-old Daniel Decarrus Medlin of Josephine Road, Garner was in the parking lot.   Medlin saw the deputy and ran away. He was captured following a brief foot chase.

Medlin was charged with resisting a public officer and misdemeanor larceny.
