Three arrested for larceny

Two reports of larceny in August have resulted in the arrests of three Chocowinity men.
According to a press release from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, the first report came on Aug. 15, when three electric golf carts and power tools were taken from a farm on Harding Lane; the second, on Aug. 23, when solar lights were stolen from the driveway of residence on East Barr Road.
Maj. Kenneth Watson, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said the golf carts and power tools and some of the solar lights were recovered shortly after the thefts in a wooded area in Chocowinity.
Cornelius Terry Lee Sparks, 26, of Hodges Road, was arrested on Aug. 20, charged with two counts breaking and entering and two counts felony larceny. According to the release, Investigator Wesley Waters obtained warrants charging Daniel Timothy Bright, 22, of Gray Road, and Timothy Jefferson, 19, of Old Blounts Creek Road, with two counts each of breaking and entering, two counts each felony larceny and on count of misdemeanor larceny for the solar lights. Sparks was served with the misdemeanor larceny warrant in the Beaufort County Detention Center. Sparks was held on a 20,000 secured bond plus an additional $1,000 bond for the misdemeanor charge and other unrelated charges. Jefferson turned himself in at the Magistrates’ Office on Sept. 18, and was held on an $11,000 bond. Bright turned himself in on Sept. 15 and was release on a written promise bond, essentially a promise to show up in court.
Watson said magistrates set bond based on many factors and that in Bright’s case, release on a written promise bond “could be indicative of his cooperation.”
