Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office received a call late Sunday night reporting a Burglary that had just occurred on Smokey Creek Road in Lenoir.  Deputies responded to the incident location and learned that Marcus Lee Smith had kicked in the back door of the residence and robbed the two persons inside.  No weapons were displayed but intimidation was used.  Marcus Lee Smith was assisted in commission of the crime by Dalton Nicholas Hendrix.  The suspects fled the incident location in a red Honda Civic which was located in the area a short time later by deputies.  Smith was arrested for first degree burglary, common law robbery, and injury to real property.  He is currently being held in the Caldwell County Detention Center under a $100,000 secured bond.  Hendrix is still at large and warrants have been issued for his arrest by Sheriff’s Office Detectives.  Anyone with information on Hendrix is urged to contact the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office or Caldwell/Lenoir Crime Stoppers at (828)758-8300.  All information will remain confidential.
