An 18-year-old man was arrested in connection with a truck theft, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department announced Thursday.
John Mark Dickerson Jr., of Memorial Drive, Cayce, is charged with grand larceny and possessing cocaine in connection with the incident Wednesday. Sheriff Lewis McCarty said the suspect took the 2008 Ford F-250 pickup truck as it was parked with the engine running outside a home on Beverly Drive near West Columbia. The truck was later recovered parked near a home on Micala Drive near West Columbia.
At the time of his arrest, the suspect had a plastic bag that contained a small amount of cocaine, McCarty said.
