Two years after deputies said a Gaston County woman stole a Lincoln County trailer containing a motorcycle, the suspect has been apprehended and placed in jail.
Kimberly Michelle Richmond, 29, of 1009 Wilson Blvd. in Dallas, was issued warrants in the case on Tuesday, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
She was picked up by Gaston County officers and turned over to Lincoln County authorities.
Richmond is accused of stealing the trailer and motorcycle from a property on the 7600 block of Mikron Drive in Denver in June 2012, the report said.
The woman was charged last year after Sheriff’s detectives found probable cause against her in the case.
The trailer was valued at $2,500 and the motorcycle worth $10,000, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Richmond was part of a “chop shop” operation in Gaston County that Gaston County Police discovered in February 2013, according to Larry Seagle, public information officer for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Additional items stolen from the Denver victim included an engine, frame, handlebars, wiring harness and other bike parts, the report said.
The operation was additionally investigated by officers in York County, S.C., and inspectors with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles.
Richmond faces two counts each of larceny and possessing stolen goods and one count of breaking and entering vehicles-RR, cars and other motor vehicles.
She remains in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $39,500 secured bond.
