AHOSKIE – Four arrests have been made in larceny crimes that date back to November of last year.

According to Hertford County Sheriff Juan Vaughan, three people from Ahoskie and one from Colerain have been taken into custody after an investigation by HCSO Capt. Will Liverman into three breaking and entering crimes.

The first was reported as a possible arson on November 13, 2012 at Jernigan Towing on Modlin Road near Ahoskie.

Vaughan said in that case it appeared the suspects caught something on fire while they were attempting to weld catalytic converters off of vehicles.

The next crime was reported on May 18 at J & T Jernigan Trucking on US 13 South in Ahoskie.

“Auto parts, tires, batteries, catalytic converters were stolen from the business,” he said.

Again on May 31 there was a report of larceny from Timber Wood Logging on East Saluda Hall Road in Ahoskie. Vaughan said four truck batteries were stolen in that case.

Those arrested for the crimes are:

Tiffany Clark, 23, of 117 Evergreen Street, Ahoskie, charged with one count of burning personal property, one count of attempted larceny and one count of injury to property/nonferrous metals.

She was jailed on a $21,500 bond and will make her first court appearance Tuesday.

He was jailed on a $73,000 secured bond and his first court appearance is Tuesday.

Timothy Ronald Jernigan, 24, of 1203 NC Highway 42, Colerain, was charged with burning personal property, misdemeanor attempted larceny and misdemeanor injury to real property/nonferrous metals.

He was jailed on a $40,000 bond and released on bail. His first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.
