ROCKINGHAM — A Richmond County pair is accused of stealing cars, trucks and vans and selling them to a salvage yard.
Warrants allege Anthony Jamison, 33, of Horseshoe Drive in Rockingham, and Roneah Monet Douglas, 16 of Taylor Place in Hamlet, were involved in scheme that netted $1,178 for selling stolen cars.
Richmond County sheriff’s deputies say Jamison stole a 1993 Chevrolet van, a 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette van, a 1992 Ford F-150 pickup truck and a 1986 Ford Escort, all in a time period ranging from June 9-18.
Deputies say that Douglas — using someone else’s driver license — and Jamison took each vehicle to Quality Salvage in Hamlet and sold them.
According to warrants, none of the cars belonged to the person whose license was being used.
Warrants show the pair sold the Chevy van, valued at $5,000, for $381.60; the Oldsmobile van, valued at $5,000, for $329.40; the pickup truck, valued at $4,000, for $356.40; and the car, valued at $2,000, for $210.60.
A warrant was issued for Douglas’ arrest July 8 and she was picked up the following day. A warrant for Jamison’s arrest was issued July 10, but no date of his apprehension is listed.
Douglas and Jamison are each charged with four felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses.
In addition, Douglas was also charged with four felony counts of identity theft, while Jamison was charged with four felony counts of larceny of a motor vehicle.
Jamison was placed under a $15,000 secured bond and released July 14. Douglas was jailed under a $10,000 secured bond.
Court records show Jamison is currently facing the same two charges in another case, as well as charges of assault on a female, second-degree trespassing and misdemeanor larceny.
N.C. Department of Public Safety records show Jamison has spent more than 5 years behind bars on numerous felony charges dating back to 1999.
