— A Raleigh attorney has been charged in connection with a vehicle theft.

Officials in New Hanover County confirmed Wednesday that attorney Nick Stratas was being held in the county jail, accused of stealing a car. He also faces two separate charges for failing to show up in court.

He was indicted by a grand jury last month on embezzlement charges in Wake County. And he was scheduled to be in court July 17 in Wake County for cyber-stalking and larceny charges.
