Burke County man arrested in connection to breaking and entering

Johnny Setzer, 42, of Connelly Springs, has been arrested on charges of breaking and entering, among others, by the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office.

Setzer was arrested Sept. 18 in connection with the late August break in of a home on Morris Creek Road in the Oak Hill community, authorities said.

Multiple firearms, jewelry and electronics were taken from the home and, officials said, the ensuing investigation was helped by surveillance footage from the home. All the stolen property has not been recovered and the investigation is ongoing.

Setzer was charged with breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen property. He was placed under a $50,000 secured bond in the Caldwell County Detention Center. Investigators said they are seeking habitual felon status related to Setzer’s arrest.

Anyone who has received property or has additional information about this case is asked to call Det. M.H. Coleman: 828-759-1554.
