Forgetting to turn on the lights of a truck while driving it in Fulton shortly after midnight resulted in the arrest of Brandon Lee Mallicoat, 17, Fulton.

At 12:12 a.m. Tuesday. a Fulton Police officer noticed a truck moving without lights along a roundabout.

The officer stopped the truck, which traveled east on Second Street and stopped at the Westlake Hardware store parking lot.

During the traffic stop, the officer noticed Mallicoat had a large sum of money in the vehicle that was separated into bundles and some of the bundles were joined together with paper clips.

While running a routine vehicle license check, the officer learned it was registered to Bob’s Carwash and that the business had been burglarized including theft of the truck.

During the traffic stop, a friend of Mallicoat arrived at the scene and told officers that Mallicoat worked at the Subway restaurant at 204 Market St. in Fulton. Officers checked with the business and learned it also had been burglarized.

Fulton Police arrested Mallicoat on two felony counts of second-degree burglary, misdemeanor stealing property valued at less than $500, felony tampering with a motor vehicle, and second-degree property damage.

Mallicoat is in Callaway County Jail with his total bond on the various charges set at $18,500.
