DORTCHES, N.C. (WNCN) — Just outside of Rocky Mount at a gas station along N.C. 43, someone phoned in a report of a suspicious person behind the wheel of a rescue vehicle on Monday.

On arrival at the Circle K in Dortches, deputies saw a man who was working on a Chevy Suburban SUV with markings of the side of it that read “Latta Rescue.”

The car had not been reported stolen, so the patrol supervisor took to Facebook to search Latta Rescue. A post showed a rescue vehicle out South Carolina had been stolen and the photo matched the car at the gas station.

After making contact with Latta Rescue to confirm the vehicle had been stolen, deputies arrested the suspect, identified as Ricky Lee Norris, and took him to the Nash County Detention Center.

Norris received a $15,000 secured bond but was also being held on a fugitive warrant as South Carolina authorities wanted him to be extradited back where he could be charged with the original larceny of the vehicle and a burglary of the rescue building the vehicle came from.

Norris was in the Nash County Detention Center on Friday, still awaiting extradition.

In a post to its Facebook page, Latta Rescue thanked the Nash County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in the vehicle recovery and for “putting a slime ball in jail!”
