Three people were arrested and charged after stealing from a Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Mooresville. An off-duty Iredell County deputy was at the store on River Highway on April 25 when he saw an employee attempting the stop a man who was pushing a cart with electrical wire and other items into the parking lot.
The employee told the deputy that the man did not pay for the items, so the deputy intervened and assisted in stopping the man. The stolen inventory was recovered without incident and returned to the store.
The off-duty deputy recorded information from the man’s vehicle before he fled the scene. The Lowe’s Loss Prevention and Regional Asset Protection Teams told the deputy they were investigating numerous thefts involving the same suspect. The thief was identified as Kody Ryan Wells of Denver, North Carolina. In addition, Ryan Wade Yoder, from Mooresville, was identified as an accomplice… WBTV News
