A Princeton woman was the victim of a major break-in and larceny that took place sometime between June 18 and the early morning hours of June 19.
Deputy Joseph Benson of the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call from Julia Raper Tate, 35, of 254 Lauren Lane, at 1:30 a.m. on the 19th. Ms. Lane told the deputy that sometime after 10:30 that morning, an unknown person or persons had forced their way into the residence and proceeded to steal several thousand dollars worth of property.
Included in the heist were three large flatscreen HDTV’s, two laptops, paintball equipment, a Wii game system, jewelry, about $350 worth of meat from a freezer, a gift card, and cash.
No suspect was named in the report and the case is currently under investigation.
A Princeton area business had been the victim of a similar caper about a day earlier.
Deputy William Wright Jr. responded to a call from Michael Klahre, an employee of Classic Stone Supply, 4767 U.S. Highway 70 East, after Klahre arrived at the business around 7:45 a.m. and discovered evidence of a burglary.
According to the report, someone had used a pry tool to force open a door to the business sometime after 6 p.m. the previous evening, and had proceeded to steal $60 in cash. The perpetrators actually did more property damage than what they managed to steal, as damage to the windowsill, side door and rear door were estimated at $190.
The case is under investigation.

Meth arrest
On June 11 at 4:47 p.m., the JCSO booked Charles Thomas Kincaid, 21, of 5810 Bizzell Church Rd., on felony charges of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute a precursor to methamphetamine, and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was placed in the Johnston County Jail under a total bond of $60,500.
At about the same time that evening, Nathan Jon Weston Jr., 22, of Newton Grove, was booked into the jail on identical charges and under the same bond. Mr. Weston told the deputies that he worked in the Princeton community.
