A man accused of stealing two women's wallets from a Montvale church during a wedding was brought to Bedford to face charges Wednesday after he was arrested earlier this year for illegally crossing a street more than 2,000 miles away.
Michael Wayne Kidd, 45, of Bedford was arrested in San Diego on May 5, according to the Bedford County Sheriff's Office, for crossing the street against a traffic light.
San Diego authorities then discovered Kidd was wanted in Bedford County in a February incident in which the wallets, credit cards and personal items of two women were taken from Faith Life Baptist Church during a wedding. The sheriff's office obtained photos of a man using the stolen credit cards in a Lynchburg store the day after the wedding, and a warrant was issued for Kidd's arrest.
Kidd was returned to Bedford on Wednesday, according to the sheriff's office, to face charges of grand larceny, fraud and credit card theft. He is being held without bond in the Bedford Adult Detention Center.
