Chief Tyree Davis said the $47 represents 24 bags of the candy reportedly stolen by Michael Whitaker II.
The events leading to his arrest around 3:30 p.m. began when Officer G. Page was dispatched to investigate a larceny from a local convenience store, Davis said in a statement.
Store video surveillance and previous arrest photos aided in the identity of Whitaker, who was also served an order for arrest for failing to appear in court earlier this month.
He was jailed on $1,000 bond and has a December 4 court date.
Meanwhile, Davis reported on Tuesday around 8:15 p.m., Corporal S. Coates stopped a vehicle for a violation.
Coates smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle driven by Quinton Morris. A search of the vehicle yielded 49 grams of marijuana, digital scales and multiple items of drug paraphernalia.
Morris was arrested and charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, maintaining a controlled substance in a vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He received a $10,000 bond and December 6 court date.
