BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A Shallotte man is accused of stealing $80 from a hotel recently, according to a police report from the Shallotte Police Department.
The manager of the Days Inn at 3670 Express Drive told police that around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, 47-year-old hotel guest Christopher Edward Mullinax took cash from the hotel's cash register. The manager showed police surveillance footage of Mullinax reportedly taking the money.
The manager says that she went to the suspect's room, where she was greeted by his wife. The wife claimed that Mullinax was at work, but allowed the manager to search the room.
The manager found Mullinax kneeling in a closet, and police went on to charge him with larceny.
Mullinax's bond has been set at $2,000, and his court date is scheduled for Dec. 9.
