A Lincolnton man accused of pawning stolen items at a Hickory shop in connection with at least two city break-ins this month remains in the county jail under a $30,000 bond.

Officers apprehended Jordy Lamar Jefferies, 26, of 205 Mauney Drive, Friday during an area traffic stop, and issued him warrants for two felony counts each of breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering, according to a report.

On Sept. 5, police investigators obtained video footage that they said showed Jefferies pawing stolen televisions at Hickory Pawn & Gun at the end of August.

Two other men who’ve also been charged in the case, Brandon Lamont Odum, 21, of 129 Mauney Drive, and Rahim Jermaine Oates, 20, of 612 2nd Street SW in Conover, were also seen in the store with Jefferies on the surveillance video, police said.

The trio are accused of taking several flat-screen televisions along with a gun, laptop computers and other electronic devices from two separate Colonial Village apartments in Lincolnton, the same complex where Odum’s sister lives.

Odum was spotted last week jumping out of the back window of her residence while running from police, who later found Odum and Oates each hiding in bushes behind separate area residences, officers said.

Investigators said they have linked Oates to at least two other city break-ins this summer but have yet to charge him in those cases.

Jefferies is set to appear a second time before a Lincoln County judge on Sept. 26.
