Man arrested in theft of Popsicles

The owners of a house on Beverly Road returned home to find a man loading three rifles and eight shotguns, along with some tools, from the house into a truck, [Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Christina] Bowersox said.

The man fled on foot and hid in nearby woods as the homeowners called deputies to the scene... Deputies began to search for the man with help from a K-9 unit.

Sometime during the 90-minute search, the man broke into an area home and stole some Popsicles, Bowersox said.

He told deputies he didn't have time to finish one of the Popsicles before they arrested him, the spokeswoman said.
