The theft of fishing gear from a boat led to charges against an Olin man.
Dustin Tyler Napier, 23, of Tabor Road, has been charged with boat break and enter and theft, two felonies, and one count of break and enter. A magistrate set the bond at $ 5,000.
Sheriff Iredell Darren Campbell said MPs responded to a call on Oct. 27 regarding the theft of several rods, reels and other fishing gear from a boat on Tabor Road.
Speaking with a witness, MPs learned Napier was a possible suspect.
Two days later, on October 29, MPs responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 500 block of Tabor Road. Napier and his mother were involved in a verbal argument, Campbell said in a press release.
He said MPs learned Napier broke into a neighbor’s outhouse on Monday and was arrested for a misdemeanor. He received an unsecured bond of $ 1,500 from a magistrate.
Property crime detectives received the information as they continued to investigate the theft of the boat. Nearly $ 500 of the stolen goods have been recovered, Campbell said. As a result of the investigation, Napier was arrested on both counts and received security bond of $ 5,000.
Napier’s criminal history includes felony and misdemeanor theft, Campbell said in the statement.
