Nation Ford student arrested in cell phone theft

A Nation Ford High School student was arrested after a surveillance camera in the auxiliary gym allegedly recorded him stealing another student’s cell phone, according to a Fort Mill Police Department report.

After the student who owned the phone, valued at approximately $300, told administrators that someone stole it during basketball practice on Sept. 30, an assistant principal notified police. Officials later looked at security camera footage and identified a suspect, a 17 year-old male, who was arrested Oct. 1 and charged with petit larceny.

The suspect allegedly admitted taking the phone from the gym, the report states.
