GREENVILLE — A fourth man has been charged in South Carolina in what authorities say was a conspiracy to steal more than $1 million from a crafts and furniture store.

Sheriff's deputies accuse the men of stealing from a Hobby Lobby store to supply two copycat stores in Greenville.

The Greenville News reported Friday that 40-year-old Leonard Gentile is charged with conspiracy and receiving stolen goods. Warrants accuse Gentile of running an illegitimate business that sold discounted goods from Hobby Lobby.

Thirty-eight-year-old former store manager Christopher Fredrick Marcie, 39-year-old Stephen Lee Knight and his 18-year-old son, Stephen Lawrence Knight, were arrested earlier. The Knights are accused of running an illegitimate business.
