A Richlands man faces felony charges for stealing a car.
The Onslow County Sheriff's Office arrested 45 year old Mark Thomas Monday evening after they say he stole a woman's 1994 Oldsmobile earlier this month.
Authorities say Thomas was trying to extort the woman, using her car as monetary leverage.
Thomas told authorities he called a wrecking company to get the vehicle.
He faces felony charges of larceny and extortion and was put in jail on a $45,000 dollar bond.
