LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Denver woman has been charged with breaking into a building and stealing tools valued at approximately $1,000.

Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 7900 block of Hickory Creek Drive, Denver, on September 10, 2020 after the homeowner reported a female had entered an outbuilding on his property and removed several items including an air compressor, propane heater, tool bag and battery charger.

The homeowner checked his security camera footage which shows the female walk up to the building, open the door and began moving items outside. She then placed the items in a white vehicle parked in the driveway and left the scene.

Detective F Runyon began investigating the incident and the person the homeowner believes was the person in the surveillance camera picture. A research by detectives determined that Allison Leigh Dunn, 55, of Todd Lane, Denver, NC pawned items similar to those stolen in the break-in. The items were recovered from the Trading Post on NC 16 Highway and returned to the owner. Ms. Dunn admitted to taking the items.

She is charged with one felony count of breaking and entering a building, one count of felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods. She is also charged with obtaining property by false pretenses in connection with the items that were pawned. Dunn turned herself in on September 14, 2020 and was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $4,000 secured bond.
