On Wednesday, May 11, Joshua Harold, 22, of Ararat, was stopped by N.C. Highway Patrolman Ellison for driving without a license. At that time, items stolen from B&B Produce in Cana were noticed in the vehicle. Harold was arrested and charged with being a fugitive from justice by the Surry County (N.C.) Sheriff’s Office.
Earlier on Wednesday, a call came in to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office from B&B Produce concerning a break-in and a burglary. Investigator Shannon Goad responded and identified Harold from surveillance photos. While Goad and Deputy Chuck Edwards were searching for Harold, word came in from North Carolina that an arrest had been made with a connection to the B&B case.
Property recovered from the vehicle driven by Harold was valued at more than $1,000.
Harold was charged with one count of felony breaking and entering and grand larceny and was being held in Surry County for extradition. Also facing the same charges are Christopher Lee King, 31, of Ararat and Tabitha McMillian, 33, of Westfield, N.C. Warrants were issued for the arrests of King and McMillian, who remain at large.
