Graham, NC - Chatham County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested Joseph Herring, 23, of Graham, North Carolina on a felony larceny charge pursuant to an incident that occurred in February. The original case was reported to the Sheriff’s Office last month when deputies responded to a report of a larceny of several items that included scrap metal, a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun and several checks from the residence of Robert Thomas of Rives Chapel Road, Siler City.

Detective Mike Szpunar developed Herring as a suspect shortly after beginning his investigation and found where he had sold the shotgun and scrap metal in Sanford. Detective Szpunar obtained warrants on Herring and arrested him on Monday without incident.

He was charged with one count of Felonious Larceny of a Firearm, Misdemeanor Larceny, and Felonious Forgery and Uttering. He released under a $5,000 unsecured bond. His court date is scheduled in Chatham County District Court in Pittsboro on March 29.
