Bond is set at $25,000 for a Mercer County man accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Auto Zone store where he worked.

According to Police, 31-year-old Sidney Warner of Jackson Center turned himself in to face charges of forgery and theft by deception.

Warner was charged as police investigated a report that $11,000 had been taken from the Auto Zone on West Main Street over several months.

Police issued a warrant for Warner’s arrest before he turned himself in.

Warner appeared in court on Wednesday and is scheduled for another hearing on August 23.
