A truck allegedly stolen from the Horse Creek area of Ashe County was recovered in Wilkesboro, following the arrest of two Miller's Creek residents, according to information released by the Ashe County Sheriffs Office on Nov. 26.
Eric Harold Burns, 32, and Jennifer Ann Holden, 30, both of Miller's Creek, were arrested by the Wilkesboro Police Department on Nov. 21 after they allegedly stole a pickup truck in Ashe County.
"(Burns and Holden) actually broke into a gentleman's truck in the Horse Creek area and the vehicle next to it," said ACSO Detective Dennis Anders. "They crossed over into Wilkes County, somehow caught the eye of the Wilkesboro Police Department before they were arrested in the Kohl's parking lot."
The arresting WPD officer was not immediately available for comment.
Anders said Burns and Holden have each been charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, and misdemeanor larceny. Burns was also arrested on a receiving stolen property charge from Grayson County, Va. The fugitive warrant was issued Nov. 2 of this year.
Anders said Burn's first court appearance was the morning of Nov. 26, while Holden has an upcoming court date. Both are being held in the Ashe County Detention Center. Bond information for both was not immediately available.
