On Tuesday, April 29th, Investigators with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office arrested Heith Fountain, 35, of 64 SD Suttles Road, DeFuniak Springs, after receiving information from a citizen.  Investigators located and followed Fountain to Lowes in DeFuniak Springs, where they observed him enter the store, immediately walk back out and load a pressure washer onto the back of his truck.  Fountain exited the parking lot and a traffic stop was conducted.  Upon further investigation, Fountain did take the pressure washer, valued at $359.00, without paying for it.

Fountain was arrested and charged with grand theft and driving while license suspended or revoked (DWLSR).
