Authorities in Rabun County arrested a Franklin man Friday night on multiple charges stemming from the theft of a motor vehicle.
At approximately 10:15 p.m., 27- year-old Steven Gerald Knight, of Conley Street, was arrested on Dunlap Street in Clayton, Georgia. Knight was charged with theft by bringing stolen property, theft by taking and failure to appear in court.
Knight’s apprehension stemmed from an incident reported earlier that day, when Franklin Police Department officer Christy Evans responded to a call referencing vandalism at Franklin Ford on US 441 North. According to her report, a concrete entrance post had been found lying in the parking lot of the business, along with other items.
