According to the Twiggs County Sheriff's Office, Keith Edward Tedder was arrested early Tuesday and is charged with multiple counts of felony theft by taking.

Investigators got a complaint from Texas Freight Services, Inc. about three boxes of Academy Sports Warehouse merchandise discovered on its property in Jeffersonville.

Surveillance video from the trucking company showed Tedder, a Texas Freight yard truck driver, leaving boxes of the merchandise at the terminal and then later putting them in his personal vehicle.

Tedder did this over a period of 22 days, according to the sheriff's office. On Tuesday, investigators took out a search warrant at his home in Jeffersonville, where they found the merchandise.

Tedder is currently being held at the Twiggs County Jail and additional charges are possible pending the investigation.
