DENVER, N.C. -- Fingerprints led police to a Catawba County man accused of stealing a truck.

The victim reported the vehicle missing from his Denver business in October.

On Nov. 1, police found the truck, as well as a trailer stolen from another owner in Hiddenite, on Buffalo Shoals Road in Statesville. Detectives took multiple items from inside the truck and processed them for fingerprints.

According to police, results showed the prints belonged to Stephen Sherrill, 27.

Catawba deputies arrested Sherrill Thursday for two felony counts of possession of stolen goods.

Sherill was booked into jail under a $20,000 bond.
