RANDLEMAN N.C. – A man who was arrested on an outstanding warrant received an additional larceny charge after deputies say he stole a pair of cuffs from the patrol car he was being held in.
On October 20th, 2023, a deputy with the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to Camellia Ln., in Randleman, for a report of an assault.
According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, the responding deputy met with the caller, Jeffrey Corum, and discovered he had an outstanding warrant for felony charges. Corum was escorted to the location of the assault in the patrol vehicle and asked to stay in the car while the deputy spoke to the parties involved.
After speaking to everyone to determine what had occurred, the deputy advised Corum he was under arrest for the outstanding warrant.
While searching Corum prior to being transported to jail, the deputy alleges they found a pair of flex cuffs that had been stolen from the front seat organizer of the patrol vehicle. The deputy also located illegal narcotics in Corum’s possession.
Corum was taken to the Randolph County Jail where the magistrate found probable cause for felony larceny of law enforcement equipment for the stolen cuffs, felony possession of heroin, and felony possession of cocaine. He received a $2,500 secured bond and a first appearance was scheduled for October 23, 2023, in Randolph County District Court.
He was also served with his outstanding warrant from earlier in the day for felony injuring utility wires/fixture, felony injury property obtaining nonferrous metal, felony possession of stolen goods, and felony larceny and received a $25,000 bond on those charges.
