SALISBURY — A local man was charged in the May theft of a firearm from the Walmart parking lot after police served an arrest warrant for another incident.

LaMichael Donnell Feamster, 26, who police said lives on the streets, was charged July 16 with assault on a female, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of stolen goods. Those charges stem from another incident.

The Salisbury Police Department said that on May 30, officers viewed surveillance video of a person later identified as Feamster in the Walmart parking lot taking a handgun from a Chevrolet Camaro.

A woman told police she had gone into the store near the tire center and then remembered that she did not lock up her handgun.

She said she was gone for about a minute. When she returned to the vehicle, someone had stolen her Tiffany Blue 9mm handgun that was sitting in the passenger seat.

The woman told officers that as she was coming back to the car, she saw someone standing next to it get into another car and drive off.

Feamster was charged Friday in the Walmart incident with felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, felony larceny of a firearm and felony possession of a firearm by a felon.

Feamster remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond.
