CABARRUS COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A man and woman were arrested on multiple charges related to vehicle thefts and break-ins dating back to July, according to the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office.

The investigations into numerous vehicle break-in incidents began in July, mostly in the Harrisburg area.

Deputies worked with Harrisburg residents and Home Owner Associations to share information about the increase in vehicle break-ins. A surveillance video of a possible suspect was sent out on July 25.

Through the investigation, and shared information, officials said they were able to identify two offenders, Travis Ledbetter, 34, and Jennifer McDonald, 36.

Ledbetter and McDonald were arrested Monday in Concord. Deputies said a stolen vehicle from Harrisburg, along with stolen items from other break-ins, were recovered.

Ledbetter was charged with three counts of felony B&E of a motor vehicle, seven counts of felony financial transaction card theft, 23 counts of felony identity theft, misdemeanor larceny, and two counts of felony possession of a stolen vehicle.

He was placed under a $500,000 bond.

McDonald was charged with felony identity theft, six counts of felony financial card theft, two counts of felony B&E of a motor vehicle, and two counts of misdemeanor larceny. She was given a $60,000 bond.

Concord and Matthews Police Departments are investigating additional charges.
