Investigators have charged a man and a woman from Lenoir in connection with the theft of merchandise from a business.
Daniel Lee Price, 26, and Amanda Marie King, 25, were arrested recently and charged in the larceny of items from Q Express on Abington Road in Lenoir.
The Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office alleges that Price and King entered the store shortly before the end of the business day Dec. 16, and that King hid in the drink cooler until the store closed.
Afterward, deputies say, King emerged from hiding and took money from the store before escaping. Investigators said surveillance video from the store led them to the suspects.
King was charged with breaking out of a dwelling, larceny after breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit felony larceny.
Price was charged with conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit larceny.
