Two Charged in Break-Ins, Thefts
Two Carthage residents are facing numerous charges related to the theft of motor vehicle parts and firearms.
Christopher Edward Puckett, 25, and Kristy Jean Kimball, 31, both of 251 Sleighbell Lane, Carthage, were arrested in late May by investigators with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office, according to a press release, in connection with several vehicle break-ins at businesses located in the West End area.
On May 21, the sheriff’s office received reports of numerous break-ins of motor vehicles located at Mark’s “The Shop.” The owner reported that someone had entered vehicles located at his business and removed parts from them. During the investigation, two other businesses, Cagle’s Auto Repair and Medleyanna’s, reported similar incidents had occurred at their businesses in West End.
Within hours of receiving the reports, according to the press release, investigators were led to the residence on Sleighbell Lane. There investigators recovered stolen property from Medleyanna’s and Mark’s “The Shop.” Investigators also located stolen property from Cagle’s Auto Repair at Integrity Recycling in Montgomery County, according to the release.
Puckett was arrested after the stolen property was discovered, and charged with 11 counts of felony breaking or entering a motor vehicle and 11 counts of misdemeanor larceny, according to the release.
On May 24, investigators also arrested Kimball, and charged her with 11 counts of felony breaking or entering a vehicle and 11 counts of misdemeanor larceny.
During the investigation, information was developed that linked Puckett and Kimball to the April 26 theft of four firearms from a residence located on Vass-Carthage Road. On May 26, Puckett and Kimball were charged with breaking and entering, larceny of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by felon.
Both were jailed, with Puckett receiving a bail of $250,000 and Kimball $10,000.
