A Clay County man will be arraigned in Putnam County General Sessions Court on July 26th after being arrested for stealing jewelry from the K-Mart store last week. Police say 37-year-old Brian Mayes is charged with felony theft for allegedly taking several bracelets, earrings, and necklaces from the display case at K-Mart and fleeing the scene. Store employees were able to get a tag number on his vehicle, which was later stopped in Jackson County. According to reports, Mayes allegedly confessed to stealing the more than two thousand dollars worth merchandise from the store.
