Man arrested for stealing car from employer

A man who stole a car from his employer after being fired from his job was arrested in North Carolina on an outstanding grand theft warrant. He was driving the car he stole at the time of his arrest.

48 year old Keith Bradshaw worked for a jewelry store in Key West. He was fired after his employer confronted him about missing jewelry. The employer had provided Bradshaw with a car to drive as part of his job. He attempted numerous times to get the car back from Bradshaw without success; he finally reported the car stolen to the Sheriff’s Office.

A warrant was issued for Bradshaw’s arrest. On December 27th, the vehicle was stopped in Morganton, North Carolina. Bradshaw was driving. Another license tag had been attached to the vehicle, a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt, but a check of the vehicle identification number revealed it had been reported stolen.

Bradshaw was arrested. On Wednesday, he was returned to Monroe County to face grand theft charges. The car was returned to its owner.
