More than Shoplifting

The Sheriff’s Office yesterday accused an Upstate man of two violations here in Laurens County early this past spring. 36-year-old Reginald Edward Gillespie of 20 Haynie Street, Greenville was charged with Receiving Stolen Goods and with Shoplifting Enhanced. Lt. Keith McIntosh states that on April 28th, 2014 the defendant had in his possession a blue 2013 Toyota Corolla, knowing at the time that the car was stolen. The car was reportedly valued at more than $10,000 and owned by Enterprise Rental. Lt. McIntosh also alleges that Gillespie shoplifted Tide detergent from a store the same date, and that he has at least two prior convictions for Shoplifting. Reginald Gillespie was being held overnight in the Johnson Detention Center, pending a bond hearing.
