HENDERSONVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office charged two 21-year-old individuals on breaking and entering into a motor vehicle.

Deputies said the initial incident occurred following a car show held in Jackson Park on late September.

According to deputies, Timothy Cody Norton and Cynthia Violet McCarson were alleged to have stolen a wallet from an unlocked vehicle and took credit cards which were used at many local businesses to run up a several amount of money in fraudulent charges on the victim’s credit cards.

Deputies said Norton and McCarson were both charged with one felony count of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, three counts of felony financial card theft and two counts of felony financial card fraud.

They said Norton was also charged with one felony count of attempting to obtain property by false pretense and one count of misdemeanor larceny. Deputies said Norton is currently in custody in the Transylvania County Jail on unrelated charges and will be arrested on the Henderson County charges once he is released.

Deputies stated McCarson was also charged with possession of stolen property and misdemeanor larceny. They said she was arrested and released on $9500 secured bond.

With the holiday celebrations upon us, the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone of a few tips to prevent and reduce chances of becoming a victim of a vehicle break-in:

  • Always lock your car when it is unattended!
  • If you leave valuables in your car, keep them out of sight or lock them in your truck.
  • Do not park at your destination and then hide your valuables. Thieves will often watch parking lots for unsuspecting victims putting their valuables out of sight when they arrive.
  • Park in well-traveled and well-lit areas of parking lots. Thieves do not want to be seen committing their crimes.
  • Engage your vehicles theft-deterrent system, if so equipped, but don’t depend on it to be the single source solution to prevent crime.

Follow these easy tips and take precautions this holiday season!
