From The Associated Press via http://www.wcnc.com, July 31, 2012

STATESVILLE, N.C. — Law enforcement officers from at least eight counties in piedmont North Carolina say they have arrested five people in connection with a burglary ring that extended from the state’s northern border to the South Carolina line.

The Charlotte Observer reports that investigators believe the ring was responsible for at least 40 burglaries in eight counties, stretching from near the Virginia border southward. A number of the burglaries occurred in the Charlotte area, and it’s believed there was at least one car theft.

The arrests followed an investigation in Iredell and Rowan counties. Search warrants led to stolen items in Statesville, where investigators said they found more than $20,000 worth of televisions, jewelry, computers, antiques, coins, firearms and more at a motel and a storage facility.
