A woman has been arrested and a teenager is being sought in connection to a string of home break-ins, according to a report from the Rowan County Sheriff's Office.

The first incident happened on Medium Drive, near Rockwell. Then, officials said, a second break-in occurred at a home on Autumn Wood Lane, near East Rowan High School.

Detectives soon received information that police in Granite Quarry were investigating similar crimes there.

During the investigation, 21-year-old Destiny Moore was identified as a potential suspect. A search warrant was executed on her home on February 20, and stolen property from Medium Drive and Autumn Wood Lane was found, deputies told WBTV.

Moore was arrested and charged with two counts of felony breaking and entering, and obtaining property by false pretenses. She was taken to jail and given a $7,500 bond.

Officials also obtained warrants on 17-year-old Douglas Martin Patrick in connection to the crimes. He had not been arrested as of 4:30 p.m. on February 21.
