UNION COUNTY, N.C. - A husband and wife are believed to be behind nearly 50 break-ins over the last month all across Union County.
They said James Clark and Jami Crowell broke into home and cars and smashed their way into businesses.
Deputies said they found Clark hiding in a wooded lot in Monroe on Monday, and Crowell was found in the closet of a home Wednesday. Both will be in court in September.
The sheriff estimated the property damage and the value of the stolen goods could be more than $28,000.
Detectives recovered some items from pawn shops, including an antique double-barrel shotgun.
“They were stealing anything that they could get out with, quickly,” Capt. Ronnie Whitaker said.
