GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Nehemiah Fredrick Morgan, 18, was arrested late last night and charged with grand theft after reportedly confessing to stealing about $1,200 from the Circle K at 1515 N. Main Street, where he was employed, over the course of about a week.
Post Miranda, Morgan admitted to taking the money to help pay his mother’s rent. He reportedly wrote a statement to the manager of the store, admitting he took the money, before the Gainesville Police Department officer arrived. Morgan has no criminal history and was released on his own recognizance.
