Man arrested over stolen office items from Myrtle Beach bank

A North Carolina man was arrested after police responded to a bank alarm and found the man in possession of various office supplies from the business, according to a police report.

Chad Anthony Pearson, 23, of Jacksonville, N.C., was charged with petty larceny and trespassing after officers responded to South Atlantic Bank at 630 29th Ave. N. about 3:45 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Officers went to the bank for an alarm and found the building was secure, so the officer waited in the parking lot for a bank official to arrive, according to the report. As the officer waited Pearson came out of the bank and the officer stopped him and noted he appeared to be intoxicated.

The officer noticed Pearson had several items in his hands that had the bank’s logo on them, according to the report. When police searched Pearson he had drink holders, a cell phone cover, address labels, post-it notes, a sheet of stamps, computer cables, a cell phone and charger, a paperweight, name tags, matches and other items from the bank.

Pearson told police he walked in the front door of the bank and a bank employee identified the items as missing from an office inside the bank, according to the report.
