Gaston and Lincoln County authorities are on the lookout for a Dallas man wanted in connection with a western Lincoln County residential break-in in April, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Jordan Cameron Moses, 21, of 1411 Gaston Way, is wanted on two felony counts of breaking and entering and one felony count of larceny, according to an agency press release.

His lengthy record on the North Carolina Department of Correction website listed a more than three-year prison sentence in Gaston County following a 2008 felony conviction for malicious conduct/prisoner. Other crimes included felony breaking and entering vehicles and misdemeanor assault on a female, ethnic intimidation and communicating threats, NC DOC showed.

Deputies have already apprehended two teens and a third individual suspected in the case.

Tyler Gunnar Robinson, 17, of 2312 Dallas-Cherryville Highway in Dallas, and Morgan Katelyn Heafner, 17, of 2344 Montrose Drive in Gastonia, have been charged with two counts each of felony breaking and entering and one felony count of larceny. Dakota Lee Cook, 21, of 818 Knowles Drive in Dallas, also faces felony charges for breaking and entering, larceny and conspiracy.

The four suspects are accused of breaking into a residence on the 2500 block of West Highway 150 on April 16 after the residents left for work, stealing a total of nearly $3,000 in items, deputies said. Belongings included a laptop and firearms.

While Cook remains behind bars under a $7,500 secured bond, Robinson and Heafner have since been released, Robinson on a $7,500 secured bond and Heafner on a $6,000 secured bond, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Cook additionally has a record on NC DOC for larceny, damage to property and drug-related crimes in Gaston County.
