Man arrested for allegedly stealing from auto repair shop

A 59-year-old man was arrested Sunday for allegedly breaking into multiple vehicles parked at Toujours Pret Automotive on West Point Road, according to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office.

“We got the call when he was seen stealing items out of the vehicles that were parked there for repairs,” said Sgt. Stewart Smith, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.

When TCSO arrived to the scene at about 1 a.m., officers made contact with Reginald Moody, who had allegedly stolen multiple items from seven vehicles parked at the automotive shop, according to Smith.

Moody was arrested and charged with seven counts of theft-entering auto. Moody was booked at TCSO Sunday morning and is being held with a $35,000 bond.

According to Smith, it is unclear how much the items stolen were worth.
