Deputies arrived and located a Latta Rescue SUV in the parking lot. The vehicle had not been entered as stolen by South Carolina authorities, but after a supervisor began looking up Latta Rescue on Facebook, they found a post made earlier showing a rescue vehicle had been stolen, and it had a photo of the same vehicle the suspect was driving.

Ricky Lee Norris, age 41, of North Charleston, SC was charged by Nash County deputies with possession of a stolen vehicle. Norris will face additional charges from South Carolina law enforcement for larceny of the vehicle and burglary of the rescue building.
