Man faces 35 felony charges in Halifax County thefts

A 21-year-old Yanceyville, N. C., man faces a total of 35 charges stemming from a rash of residential break-ins and larcenies that occurred throughout the southern part of the county during the late summer and early fall of 2010.

Timothy Lewis Lipscomb of Dillard School Road was extradited from North Carolina to Halifax County on Friday when he was charged with 18 felony counts of intent to burglarize, 15 felony counts of grand larceny of more than $200, a felony count of grand larceny of a firearm and a misdemeanor count of petty larceny, according to Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark.

 The alleged offenses occurred Aug. 16, 2010, Sept. 12, 2010, Sept. 20, 2010, Sept. 21, 2010, Sept. 29, 2010, and Deputy C. S. Hudson served the warrants.

Lipscomb is one of four people arrested in October 2010 on charges related to the suspected operation of a theft ring throughout counties in Virginia and North Carolina and based in Caswell County, N.C., according to reports from 2010.

A task force was formed after numerous reports of burglaries, according to a news release from the Caswell County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office earlier this year.

Sheriff’s offices in Alamance, Person and Caswell counties joined the task force.

Task force investigators worked together to identify theft cases with similar patterns.

For example, a burglary in Halifax County where witnesses reported seeing a suspicious vehicle led investigators back to Caswell County on Sept. 29, according to the release.

The initial arrests of Lipscomb and Khalir Johnson led to recovered property and the subsequent arrests and charges.

Items stolen in the suspected theft ring include firearms, TVs, jewelry, computers and video game systems.

Agencies involved in the investigation in Virginia include the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, Danville Police Department and Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office.

In North Carolina, agencies involved included the Caswell County Sheriff’s Office, Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, Burlington Police Department, Guilford County Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Person County Sheriff’s Office and Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office. 

Following his arrest in 2010, Lipscomb was being held in Caswell County Jail.

After authorities extradited Lipscomb to Halifax County on Friday, he is being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail.
