LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Lincoln County man is facing charges after being apprehended with a stolen vehicle last night near Crouse, N.C.

Deputies were patrolling the area near the Dollar General in Crouse, N.C. when they noticed a pickup truck similar to a vehicle stolen on Saturday from a location on Reepsville Road. Deputies parked nearby to see who was driving the vehicle and that is when Matthew Hugh Black, 37, of Beaumont Lane, Lincolnton, N.C. exited the store.

He saw the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office patrol car and attempted to flee the scene on foot but was quickly apprehended after a brief chase. Several items Black had stolen from the Dollar General were recovered and returned to the store. The 1993 Ford Ranger was seized and returned to the owner.

Black is charged with felony possession of stolen goods, felony possession of heroin, misdemeanor possession of stolen goods, injury to personal property, resist-delay-and obstruct a public officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana paraphernalia, and two outstanding warrants for failure to appear. Black was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $21,500 secured bond.

Investigating officers were Sgt. R. Hoernlen, Deputy M. Farra, and Detective Jon Propst.
