32-year-old Seth Dixon Stepp of 37th Street S.W. in Hickory was arrested by Hickory Police last Wednesday (September 22) morning on four felony and two misdemeanor counts of failure to appear. He was also charged with several felony probation violations.
Stepp reportedly failed to appear in court on charges of possession of a schedule II controlled substance, driving while license revoked, larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, altering serial numbers, and assault on a female.

Stepp was taken into custody without incident at a used car lot on Highway 70 S.W. in Hickory. He was jailed in the Catawba County Detention Facility with bond set at $35,000, secured. An appearance in District Court was scheduled for October 27 with a Superior Court date on November 8.
