MONROE, N.C. A man was arrested and cited after being accused of stealing multiple bottles of Gain laundry detergent.

The alleged theft happened Friday at the Dollar General on West Franklin Street. The store manager called authorities after Clengy Clark reportedly loaded up a shopping cart full of Gain laundry detergent and wheeled it out of the store.

According to the report, when the manager confronted him about paying he left all eight bottles of detergent and drove away from the scene.

The report goes on to state that he was later stopped and arrested for an unrelated outstanding warrant. After the arrest, the responding officer also cited him for larceny from the Dollar General.

He is expected to appear in court on May 2, 2013.
