Boone Police have made three arrests—two in connection with an early-morning break-in at a Sunset Drive home—and a driver.  19-year olds Grant Weldon Gousby and Owen Dean Alspaugh Jr., both of Ashville were arrested and charged with one count each of first degree burglary. Gousby and Alspaugh are alleged to have entered the Sunset Dr. residence and taken several electronic items.  Police say the incident occurred in the early morning hours today, with officers first encountering a suspicious vehicle on Azalea Dr., there finding Shelby Nicole Phelps, age 20 of Ashville.  Further investigation found that she was connected with Gousby and Alspaugh.  After a search of the area, officers located the two suspects in the area of Blowing Rock Rd.  Further investigation into their suspicious behavior led officers to the residence on Sunset Dr. where it was confirmed that items were taken from the residence and later located nearby.  Alspaugh, who at the time was in possession of some of the property, was also charged with one count of misdemeanor possession of stolen property. Gousby and Alspaugh were taken before a Watauga County Magistrate and were issued a court date of April 17, 2012 and are being held on an $85,000.00 secured bond. Phelps was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and under age possession of alcohol.  She was given a court date of April 17, 2012 and held on a $750.00 secured bond. With further investigation into this matter, no direct correlation was made with the other break-ins to local businesses.
