A Wadesboro man spent two days last week committing crimes, according to officials.

Bobby Floyd Newton, 35, was arrested by a deputy with the Anson County Sheriff’s Office Dec. 2. Newton allegedly stole a red 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt valued at $10,000 on Dec. 1 before breaking into a Tally Farms building on Diggs Road in Wadesboro on Dec. 2.

Newton was charged with felony larceny of a motor vehicle and misdemeanor breaking and entering. He was booked in the Anson County Jail under a combined $20,000 secured bond and has a court date of Dec. 13.

Newton has previous convictions dating back to 1999, including possessing and receiving stolen goods, assault on a female and more. He was incarcerated at Brown Creek Correctional Institution in 2011 for burglary and other offenses and released to serve parole, which has been terminated, according to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
