Police Catch Sulphur Springs Man With Stolen Items

A Sulphur Springs man, 37, was allegedly caught early Tuesday morning with merchandise he was alleged to have just stolen from a store.
Police were dispatched to a gas station in the 1300 block of South League Street, where a theft was reported to have occurred just before 3:30 a.m. Police were given a description of the suspect, who reportedly walked toward a nearby apartment complex upon exiting the store.
Officers also watched a video of the suspect, a male wearing a black shirt and black shorts they alleged could be seen walking past all points of sale with multiple items taken from the store, the officers noted in arrest reports. 
Police reported finding the 37-year-old man they believed to be the suspect in the middle of the apartment complex with items he’d allegedly stolen from the store. Consequently, the Sulphur Springs man was arrested at 2:45 a.m. July 9 on a misdemeanor theft charge, according to arrest reports. He was released from jail later July 9, according to jail reports.
