Adams theft charge dismissed

April 27, 2012 — A theft charge has been dismissed against Clayton Adams of Morehead who was accused of stealing more than $44,000 from a car lot.

A Rowan County grand jury dismissed the charge on March 16.

Adams, a former employee of Lying Lee’s Used Cars, was accused of taking $44,575 from the business over the span of nine months last year.

The grand jury said there was insufficient evidence to warrant an indictment.

The charge was dismissed without prejudice, meaning Adams could be charged with the offense again.
