LONDONDERRY — A Chillicothe man was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle after a car went missing in McArthur and was located in Londonderry.
On Sept. 3, 2020, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a vehicle being stolen from the Village of McArthur. The vehicle was found in the Family Dollar Store parking lot in Londonderry.
After reviewing video that McArthur Police had obtained from Family Dollar, deputies identified the individual as Timothy Pettit, 39, of Chillicothe. Pettit had reportedly been released that morning after posting bond on a previous case.
Pettit was found at his residence in Ross County by deputies and arrested without incident. A key found on Pettit during his arrest was reportedly positively identified by the owner of the stolen vehicle, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Pettit was arrested and taken to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle. A bond hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.
