Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office deputies had an easier time than perhaps expected when they busted a man suspected of stealing crops near Rocky Mount, North Carolina, officials said in a Facebook post.
The authorities responded to the theft report on Highway 97 on Friday morning, Aug. 23, to find the suspect stuck in a field with a truckload of stolen watermelons, according to a Facebook post made by the sheriff’s office.
Michael Anthony Bryant was arrested and charged with misdemeanor larceny. He was given a $500 bond and put in the Edgecombe County Detention Center.
No further information was released.
