Farmville Man Charged With Stealing Antique Iron Tub

It's a pretty strange object to steal, but the Pitt County Sheriff's Office has arrested a suspect who they say made off with an old antique iron tub.

Deputies say 36-year-old Joseph Panichelli of Farmville admitted to stealing the tub and some other metals from a Winterville home.

The homeowner reported the items missing after returning from vacation Sunday.

The items were sold to Foss Recycling.

Panichelli faces several charges and was placed in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $5,000 bond.
