Odin Man Receives 5 Year Prison Term for Taking Jewelry From Salem Walmart

March 5, 2017

A 33-year-old Odin man has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty in Marion County Court to felony retail theft.

Joshua Arnold of North Woods admitted to taking jewelry valued at over $2,100 from the Salem Walmart store in January of last year. Salem Police say Arnold gained entry to the jewelry display case and scooped up the jewelry before making his way out of the store.

Arnold was charged with the Salem retail theft after being taken into custody following a similar incident at the Centralia Walmart Store. He still has two felony retail theft charges pending against him in Clinton County Court at Carlyle as well as a charge of possession of methamphetamine and forged registration in Fayette County Court in Vandalia.

Arnold pleaded guilty last November to a burglary in White County Court in Carmi. He also received a five year prison term on that charge. The time will be served concurrently with the Marion County conviction.
