A man with an active Bay County warrant was arrested on theft charges after a 9-1-1 caller alerted authorities to a theft from a residence on State 71 in Wewahitchka.

Nicholas Andrew Pierce, 35, was arrested Sept. 28 after the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a person stealing items from a residence.

The caller was able to provide a detailed description of the vehicle and its occupant, which led Deputy Paul Williams to Pierce.

During the investigation Pierce provided a false name and date of birth when asked to identify himself. It was later determined Pierce had an active warrant out of Bay County. He was placed under arrest for the out-of-county warrant and providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
