A Johnson City man was arrested Thursday following an investigation into a theft at a rent-to-own business.

Johnson City police arrested Dallas K. Griffy, 47, 2621 Watauga Road, who reportedly took computer hardware and software from Rent-a-Center.

According to the report filed on Nov. 25, police were dispatched to the business after an employee called to report the theft. The employee told police that Griffy reportedly rented the property, but then failed to complete the payments and did not return them to the store.

He was charged with one count of theft of property over $1,000 and was taken to Washington County Detention Center.

Griffy was being held on $5,000 bond and was scheduled for arraignment in Sessions Court Thursday.
