  The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office yesterday filed a Simple theft charge in connection with an alleged theft last spring. 22-year-old Rocky Lee Pounds of 438 Hillsalter Road, Kite, Georgia was charged with Simple, or Petit Larceny. On April 10, 2012, when he reportedly lived at a Clinton address, Rocky Pounds allegedly took an Emerald 10-carrot ring valued at $2,000 that belonged to a Laurens woman and sold it at a store in Clinton. Mr. Pounds was released from the Johnson Detention Center yesterday on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond.
