One arrested, two sought in break-in, credit card fraud

Posted January 11, 2010

— A woman has been arrested and two men are wanted in connection with a Nov. 29 residential break-in on Waterford Drive, Clayton police said Monday.

Police said credit cards, jewelry, an X-Box, DVDs and video games were stolen during the break-in. The stolen credit card was later used at a local store, leading to the arrest of Angela Marie Corey, 21, on Dec. 30, 2009, police said.

Corey, of 533 Country Lane, Lot 37 near Clayton, faces charges of conspiracy to obtain property by false pretense. She was placed in the Johnston County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond.

Police are searching for two other suspects: Antonio Cortez Chrisp, 20, of Rock Quarry Road in Raleigh, and Matthew Tyler Hunichen, 20, of 4084 Barber Mill Road, near Clayton. Both have outstanding warrants for felony possession of stolen goods and felony obtaining property by false pretense.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Chrisp and Hunichen should call Detective J.P. Linder with the Clayton Police Department at 919-553-4611 or Clayton Crime Stopper at 910-359-8479. A cash reward is available for information that leads to the arrest of these men, and callers to Crime Stoppers can remain confidential.

    I have a surveillance system at my house, 4 cameras being recorded at ALL TIMES.. day and night (with night vision).. the DVR (recorder) is well hidden in my house.. so you break in my house anytime.. you better smile for the cameras.. b/c you WILL be caught! It is a SVAT electronic.. works perfect! I can see my cameras at home (live) over the internet here at work.. or anywhere with a internet connection. My system will even send you emails to your phone if any of your cameras go off. All this for only about $700. Much smarter than paying a security place to monitor your home.. plus they don't have cameras!

    She works with me at (or used to after this) at the Clayton Walmart. They took her from the store handcuffed.

    The republican ideal of gun ownership also contains the politics of wild free market economies that create multi million dollars bankers and few jobs for those with lesser education. Buy Local is a "liberal" ideal that reduces the power of multinational corporations and keeps money and jobs in communities. Buy Local *does not* mean buy at your local Wal-Mart, which is single handedly responsible for bringing down the NC textile industry. Learn what the people you elect do to the world you live in and stop having faith in the pulpit of the party.

    Mr. Rottweiler and Mr. Doberman also make excellent deterrents.

    I agree samiam1244. The ones we hear about on the news (the breakins) are not all of them by a long shot. Many are not reported by WRALa and other channels. Just last Thursday, during the day, a very good friend of ours home was broken into. Broad daylight. Seem to know the goings and comings of the couple. Never a peep about this in the news. Know of other breakins in the Town Home development we live in and they are never in the news.

    So bottom line folks, keep your door locked at all times, get an alarm system. It doesn't have to have the pay for mointoring service. Just one that protects all doors and windows and is connected to an ear splitting siren. That is what thieves do not want. Lound noise. Besides by the time the police answered a mointored system, they would be long gone anyway.

    And for personal protection, keep a loaded firearm handy. Break into my home and you will come face to face with the business end of a 12 guage shotgun. No way you will live to tell about it
