WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A Winnabow man accused of a hit-and-run in a Wilmington parking deck earlier this month was taken into custody in Brunswick County Thursday morning.
Aaron Ray Shepard, 40, is charged with hit and run leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, driving with a revoked license, and driving without insurance. He was given a $1,500 bond.
Wilmington police responded to the North Second Street parking deck on June 5 after a ticket booth operator reported that a man, later identified as Shepard, entered the deck, struck a parked car and then hit a wall while searching for a parking spot.
The booth operator said Shepard took off when she approached him. Before he left, she was able to take note of the van’s registration.
