Two women charged in Goldsboro break-in

Posted September 17, 2012

— Two Goldsboro women were charged last week after police said they broke into a neighbor's home and stole items.

Goldsboro police said Monday they arrested Marie Moseley, 26, and Katrina Jones, 21, both of 926-B Hugh St., and charged them with one count each of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and possession of stolen property.

The charges stem from a report about criminal activity at 924-B Hugh St., which said someone entered the secured residence between Aug. 13 and Aug. 24 by removing a window air conditioner. About $915 worth of items were stolen from the home, police said.

Moseley and Jones were each held in the Wayne County jail under a $6,000 secured bond. They have court appearances scheduled Monday.

Police said Jeffrey Rishawn Leach Jr., who was arrested Sept. 12, faces charges in the same case.

    Unemployment is bad in Goldsboro? I beg to differ. Yes, it can be "work" to look for a job, make contacts, and write letters, but there are jobs to be had. My husband and I both are employed as well as our teenage sons. In fact, my nineteen year old son is attending college full time and working two jobs. He will actually work close to fifty hours this week.

    These "ladies" should get off their duff and find a job. The only problem, the government has made it more lucrative to stay home and collect handouts.

    Two more for the scrap heap. It's easier to steal something an honest person had to work for as opposed to earning what they want. You will see their names again in the news after this.

    They have ruin their life because whenever they do seek employement or go back to school, their criminal record may be a major factor in preventing them from doing so. They give back ground checks for community colleges and jobs. Young people need to think before jumping into crime.

    Unemployment is pretty bad in Goldsboro,

    Just because unemployment is not good in that city, is not an excuse to break into homes and steal.

    If these young ladies would seek employment or go back to school to learn a trade then they would not have time to do crime.

    Unemployment is pretty bad in Goldsboro, much worse than the official stats. Theft seems to be the only industry doing well. The inner & southern parts of the city have turned into a war zone.

    Guess they are too lazy to get out and work for a living, so, instead, just go out and break into someones home and get what you want. Sure hope no one tries to break into my home. what a surprise they would get...
