MASON — An arrest warrant for grand larceny has been issued for Jonathan Arthur Brodie, 29, of Henderson, N.C., in connection with a burglary that occurred at Walmart in Mason, according to Mason Police Chief Rich Gilkey.
Brodie allegedly entered the store on April 26 and forcibly removed 21 electronic products from a secured case without purchasing them. The value of the stolen items totaled $3,404.80.
Chief Gilkey said following an investigation by Mason Officer Kendall Roush and Detective Kevin Day, Brodie was identified from the store security cameras.
Brodie has prior convictions, is presently wanted on a warrant in North Carolina for burglary, and is considered armed and dangerous, Gilkey said. The chief added Brodie is also considered a known drug user.
He remains at large along with two associates, who are also wanted in connection with the burglary, but remain unidentified at this time. Gilkey said anyone having information on Brodie’s location, or his known associates, should contact the Mason Police Department or their local police agency.
