He could face up to two years in prison if he is convicted of the felony.His recent arrest came after he reportedly took two Southern Standards from a newspaper box in front of Cleaner’s Express. The owner of the establishment saw him taking the papers without paying after another person had paid to get a paper and the door was still open.The police and the newspaper office were called as the man left the scene, vowing to return.“I didn’t think there was a chance he’d come back,” admitted Southern Standard editor James Clark, who responded to the scene.
