— Moore County sheriff's deputies have arrested two Sanford women who are accused of stealing a dog from a third woman's home on Monday.

Jamie Marie Sherry Jackson, 28, of 412 Douglas Farm Road in Sanford, and Christy Ann Ricketson, 19, of 4007 Swann Station Road in Sanford, were each charged with one count of felony larceny of a dog and one count of felony possession of stolen goods.

Authorities said the dog's owner, Ashley Atkinson, reported that two people in a white SUV went to her home near Vass, picked up the dog and left.

Investigators determined Jackson had been driving the vehicle.

Jackson, who was in the Moore County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond Tuesday, was also charged with driving while impaired, habitual driving while impaired, driving while license revoked and misdemeanor child abuse.

Ricketson was in the jail under a $25,000 bond.
