SALISBURY — Salisbury Police arrested a man who was wanted for four charges of larceny and one charge of defrauding an innkeeper on Friday.

Parker Niles Graham, 28, of Salisbury, was arrested at the Magistrates Office.

Graham allegedly shoplifted from Walmart, at 323 S. Arlington St., from Jan. 16 to Jan. 21. Three of the larceny charges were misdemeanor and the fourth was a felony charge.

He was also charged with defrauding an innkeeper or campground owner after he “dined and dashed” from DJ’s Restaurant at 1502 W. Innes St., on Jan. 16. Police Lt. Greg Beam said he and another woman ordered $106 worth of food and alcohol, including ribs, ribeye, nachos and eight cordial and eight Hennessy drinks. The two snuck out of the back of the restaurant without paying.

Police have not made an arrest on the other woman.

Parker remains in Rowan County Detention Center under a $7,000 secured bond.
