Christopher Singletary was charged with gun possession by a felon. He has a string of felony convictions in Orange and Guilford counties and is listed by the state as an absconder from his most recent parole.

Dominque Singletary worked at the restaurant, police said. It was unclear Friday if or how the Singletarys are related.

According to a police report, the theft netted about $585.

Christopher Singletary was captured on Pine Limb Lane, near the restaurant.

Police did not say where they took Dominque Singletary into custody.

The older Singletary was held on $80,000 bail.

The younger man was held without bail because he had been convicted of illegal gun possession in 2015 in Guilford County.
