A woman in the East is now in custody, facing charges of shoplifting and breaking and entering, according to the Bertie County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident unfolded on Friday around 9:50 a.m. when deputies responded to a report of a shoplifter at the Aulander Family Dollar. Upon arrival, they discovered Latoya Williams actively concealing merchandise. Williams was subsequently arrested and released with a written promise to appear in court.
However, the legal troubles for Williams continued on Saturday around 4 p.m. when she allegedly broke into Jerry’s Sign Shop in Askewville and gained unauthorized entry into the building. Deputies swiftly responded and took her into custody.
Latoya Williams now faces charges of misdemeanor shoplifting and misdemeanor breaking and entering. She has been confined to the Bertie/Martin Regional Jail pending further legal proceedings.
