Statesboro City Councilman Gary Lewis agreed Monday to pay a Statesboro Herald independent contractor $1,000, but did not admit to stealing eight newspapers from a Herald newspaper box outside Harvey's on Highway 80 West. Contractor Tony McMillan was seeking to secure an arrest warrant against Lewis stemming from the Sept. 16 incident where a Statesboro Herald employee said he saw the councilman take the papers from the box. During a mediation hearing Monday morning in the Statesboro Magistrate Court office conducted by Mae Riggs, McMillan agreed to the settlement after meeting with Lewis, his attorney Kendall Gross and the mediator.
