41-year-old James Howard Weise, Jr. of Sandalwood Court in Newton was served a felony indictment by Hickory Police shortly after eleven o’clock Sunday night (April 13) on one count of failure to return hired property.
Weise allegedly failed to return a rental vehicle to Mike Johnson’s Hickory Toyota in November of 2012. He and the 2012 Toyota Camry were found by authorities in Gatlinburg, Tennessee later that month.
Weise was taken into custody without incident at the Kangaroo Express on Highway 70 S.E. He was placed in the Catawba Co. Detention Facility under a $10,000 secured bond with an appearance in Superior Court set for April 25 in Newton.
