APD arrests Tuskegee man on theft warrant

A Tuskegee man was arrested on Wednesday on an outstanding warrant for second-degree theft.

The Auburn Police Division arrested Terrion J. Stewart, 21, of Tuskegee, AL, stemming from an investigation into a theft at a business located on the 100 block of North College Street.

The victim said an unknown suspect, later identified as Stewart, stole her purse while she was inside the business as a customer.

Stewart, who was identified on video surveillance taking the purse, was contacted a short time later just outside the business by police.

All of the property taken in the theft was recovered by police.

Stewart was transported to the Lee County Jail and will be eligible for a $3,000 bond.
