STANLY COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A man was arrested in Stanly County Tuesday for renting out a house that didn't belong to him, and for having goods stolen from a church in his home, according to the Stanly County Sheriff's Office.

On April 23, a man contacted the Sheriff's Office and told them that someone had rented one of his houses out without permission, and was collecting $400 a month in rent.

After investigating, deputies obtained warrants on Richard Stephen Huneycutt, 58, for attempt to obtain property by false pretense.

While arresting Huneycutt at his home, deputies found ten boxes of Gourmet that were stolen from the First Assembly of God Church on March 21. As a result, Huneycutt was also charged misdemeanor possession of stolen goods.

Huneycutt was taken to the Stanly County Detention Center and placed under a $1,500 secured bond. He is due in District Court on July 2.
