AWOL soldier arrested
Catawba County sheriff's deputies arrested a Florida man Thursday who is wanted by United States military officers.
Michael Joseph Hinrichs, 31, was charged with being a fugitive when officers located him for the United States Army. The Army had a felony warrant for Hinrichs' arrest because Hinrichs was allegedly absent from duty without leave.
Hinrichs was living in Catawba when deputies arrested him Thursday about 2 a.m. and transported him to Catawba County jail.
He is being held with no bond until military officers arrive to take him into custody.
