40-year-old Dewayne Lee Howard of Taylorsville was arrested Sunday (April 17) on a magistrates order charging him with three felony counts of uttering a forged instrument and one felony count of attempt to utter a forged instrument.
In February, Howard was taken into custody after he allegedly took a buggy full of stolen items out of the local WalMart Store. He was spotted pushing the shopping cart across Highway 16 onto Industrial Boulevard.
Howard was noticed by an Alexander County Sheriff’s Deputy and a Taylorsville Police Officer in front of the Alexander County Law Enforcement Center. The cart was stuffed with three televisions, a bag of charcoal, grilling tools and assorted other items. He was charged with larceny.
Following Sunday’s arrest, Howard was placed in the Alexander County Detention Center under $10,000 secured bond. He remained in jail as of earlier today (April 19). A District Court appearance is scheduled for May 9.[Story courtesy of Rick Gilbert, WACB]
