Deputies said a Fountain Inn man who was wanted in connection with the thefts of various antiques and other items throughout the Upstate was arrested Wednesday.
Laurens County deputies with the help of Fountain Inn police said they arrested 44-year-old Mathew Williams after he allegedly stole a golf cart and utility trailer in Honea Path.
Williams was charged with second-degree burglary, grand larceny, enhancement/property offense. He was being held on a $75,000 bond in Laurens County.
Fountain Inn police said Williams was arrested recently in connection with the theft of a fiberglass Bi-Lo bull and was released on bond. Then police said Williams was their suspect when more things were stolen throughout the area, including old Coca-Cola signs from Martin's General Store.
Police Chief Keith Morton said they executed seven search warrants at Williams' home and removed 25 pages worth of stolen goods. He said they removed various items including guns, a safe, golf carts and an old store sign from Martin's.
Anyone who may have had antiques or vintage items stolen is asked to call Fountain Inn police because Morton said they are still working to find the owners of some items.
