Theft caught on restaurant's security camera

A warrant has been issued on a Union man for the theft of a vehicle. Public Safety Officers responded to Arby’s on Friday about the missing vehicle. They spoke to the victim, who stated his 2009 Chevy Silverado pickup was stolen from the Arby’s parking lot while he was inside working.

He said he parked the truck in a parking spot underneath the camera near the lobby entrance around 11 a.m. Friday, and when he came out to leave a little after 6 p.m., he realized his truck was missing. He told officers he had left the doors to the truck unlocked and the key had been inside the truck. He said his manager had seen the truck in the parking lot at around 3 p.m.

Cpl. Kayla Garrett spoke with the manager, who stated she had contacted the district office and the video footage would be emailed to Garrett. The footage showed a light-skinned male wearing brown or tan pants, dark-colored shoes, and a bright orange jacket walking up to the truck. He walked around the vehicle, looked inside the windows, walked away, and then approached the truck again. He got in through the driver’s side door and drove out of the Arby’s parking lot.

The victim’s grandfather came to the store and told Garrett the truck was in his name and provided her with the vehicle information and description. After investigation, a warrant was signed on 42-year-old Bruce Lee Worthy. The truck was valued at $20,000. It was later recovered.
