HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

Thirty-three year old William Morriszie Fuller, also known as Willie James was arrested early Wednesday morning.

Fuller was wanted by Beaufort County Sheriff's Office investigators for three counts of forgery, one count of shoplifting, and one count of second degree attempted burglary, all occurring on Hilton Head Island.  

Fuller forged three checks reportedly stolen from the home of an acquaintance between Dec. 11-13.

Fuller made each check out to himself, which totaled more than $1,500 in stolen funds.

Fuller was also indentified in video surveillance footage from a shoplifting at a CVS Pharmacy located at 10 Pope Ave. on Jan. 12.

Fuller was shown stealing five cartons of cigarettes valued at $269 total.

Fuller was again captured on video surveillance on Jan. 14 when he attempted to burglarize H&H Auto, located at 35 Hunter Rd. Fuller attempted to gain entry into the business by throwing a rock through the front window, but he fled the area after setting off the alarm. The business sustained an estimated $800 in damages.  

Deputies made contact with a suspicious person on Cardinal Road, later identified as Fuller, just before 2:30 am Wednesday morning.

Fuller was wearing all dark clothing and riding his bicycle in the area of H&H Auto.

Fuller told deputies that his name was Larry Fuller, and that he was going to meet friends at the Hampton Inn.

Fuller was found to be in possession of a ladies' Coach-brand purse and several pieces of identification not belonging to him at the time of his arrest.

Investigators are working to determine if the recovered items may have been illegitimately obtained.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Investigator Sgt. L. Albertin at 843.255.3413 or Crimestoppers.
