LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Lexington County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man accused of stealing a pop-up camper trailer from a storage facility near Chapin.

Sheriff James Metts says Thomas Richard Armstrong, 53, of Mountville is charged with grand larceny, receiving stolen goods, giving false information to a law enforcement officers, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana. Armstrong posted $9,312 bail Wednesday and was released from the Lexington County Detention Center.

According to an arrest warrant, Armstrong is accused of breaking into a storage facility on Wessinger Road and stole a pop-up camping trailer worth about $6,500. Metts says the trailer was found two days later at a home on Overlook Court where Armstrong was staying.

The warrant says deputies also found Armstrong had a suitcase full of sunglasses that had been reported stolen from an eye care center in Chapin. While deputies searched Armstrong and the camper he was living in, they found marijuana.

Metts said when questioned, Armstrong gave investigators false personal information because he knew he was wanted on warrants from the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services.
