LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - An 18-year-old was arrested in connection with multiple break-ins that occurred in Lincoln County Monday.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, several homes and vehicles were broken into on Kings Grant Road and Queen's Road in the Lincoln Forest subdivision near Highway 150 in Lincolnton.
