A Stanly County teen has been charged in connection with several residential break-ins in the northern part of the county, according to the sheriff’s office.

Christopher Alexander Carpenter, 17, of New London, was arrested last week after an investigation that began during the winter.

The sheriff’s office said a series of break-ins and larcenies was reported from the New London community between December and April. Deputies said the investigation led them to Carpenter.

He was charged with three counts of breaking and entering and three counts of larceny after breaking and entering. Carpenter was jailed under $10,000 bond. His first court appearance is scheduled for May 19.
