A Mitchell man was arrested after allegedly stealing a vehicle outside a Main Street bar on Wednesday.

Randy Larrimore, 44, was arrested on Wednesday night and charged with grand theft and DUI among other charges after allegedly entering a 2007 Ford Fusion that was left running outside Dr. Lucky's Bar and Grill on Main Street in Mitchell, according to Mitchell Patrol Officer Paul Wilson.

The Fusion's driver parked the vehicle outside the bar at about 9 p.m. Wednesday and left the engine running before going inside the bar, Wilson said. Larrimore then allegedly entered the vehicle and drove away.

According to Wilson, Mitchell Patrol Sgt. Ryan Erickson recognized Larrimore from a witness' description.

Erickson began driving to an apartment building on North Minnesota Street where he believed Larrimore could be found, and he located the Fusion at the 400 block of North Minnesota, driving toward the residence, Wilson said.

Larrimore was placed under arrest and charged with grand theft, first-offense DUI, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, having an open alcohol container in a vehicle and petty theft of less than $400.

The vehicle was not damaged.

On Thursday, a resident of the Minnesota Street apartment turned over some of Larrimore's belongings to police, Wilson said. Davison County jailers searched the contents and allegedly discovered two marijuana pipes containing marijuana residue.

Larrimore was then charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was still in custody as of Thursday afternoon.
