It seems that the Sunglass Hut at Tanger Shoppes on the Parkway are a favorite target of thieves, with three people charged in a larceny February 19th. At about 6:50pm, a Sunglass Hut employee reported that three people left the store after stealing a couple pair of sunglasses. Blowing Rock PD Officers Dan White and Jordan Byland were able to stop the suspects as they left Tanger traveling North on Valley Blvd., recovering the stolen merchandise and charging the trio of Lenoir residents with the theft. Patrick Matthew Vaught, 30, was charged with larceny and also under a warrant from Caldwell County; Matthew Minton, 24, was charged with larceny and driving while license revoked, while Morgan Sigmon, 18, was charged with larceny.
Blowing Rock Police also report an attempted break-in on February 18th at a residence on New River Drive. Residents discovered some pry marks on the back door of their home, but entry was not made into the home and nothing was taken. The homeowners were not sure how long the pry marks may have been on the door.
