AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- An Augusta man has been jailed on charges that he stole towels -- not from a hotel, but from a retail store.
A police report says the 46-year-old man was arrested Friday after he walked into a Family Dollar store and stuffed his shirt with bath and hand towels. The report says he walked out of the store without paying.
The Augusta Chronicle reports Larry Laverne Adams was calm and apologetic to authorities. The police report says he told a sheriff's deputy he made a mistake and he didn't know why he took the towels.
Deputies returned the stolen goods to the store manager. Adams was booked into Richmond County jail. It was unknown Saturday if Adams has an attorney.
