ROCKINGHAM — A Richmond County woman is accused of stealing 10 purses, $3,000 in jewelry and a flat-screen television during a break-in at a city apartment.
Rockingham police last week charged 31-year-old Toni Marie Everett of 129 Deanna Lane outside Rockingham with forcing her way into an Ann Street apartment on March 17. Everett stole personal property with a combined value of $4,900, according to a warrant for her arrest served July 10.
Police say Everett took a 32-inch Magnavox flat-screen TV, assorted gold jewelry, $1,500 in cash and 10 purses during the March break-in. Officers charged her with one count each of felony breaking and entering, felony larceny after breaking and entering and felony possession of stolen property.
Everett was released from prison in November 2011 after serving a 6-month sentence on Richmond County convictions of misdemeanor breaking and entering and acting as an accessory after the fact to common-law robbery, according to the N.C. Division of Adult Correction.
Records show Everett also has been convicted of assault inflicting serious bodily injury. Most recently, she received probation on an April 2011 conviction of identification card fraud.
Everett has pending felony charges of selling cocaine, possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine, misdemeanor larceny and misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury in Richmond County, court records show.
She was jailed on the break-in and theft charges under a $10,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
