Hickory Man Wanted for Break In 12/26/2012 2:41:10 PM
A Hickory family told police they returned home early Christmas morning from an out-of-state trip and found their apartment had been broken into and electronics had been stolen.
The Hickory Police Department reports they received a call from 2970 12th Avenue Southeast at 5:20 a.m. While police were investigating at the apartment, they established 35-year-old Jamie Edward Lewis as the suspect and established probable cause to obtain a search warrant for his residence at 1610 7th Ave. SW. When officers arrived at Lewis’ residence he was not home, but they were able to contact him on his cell phone. Lewis said he would meet the officers at his residence, but he never showed up and officers had to break down his door to enter. Inside the residence, officers recovered all the items stolen earlier in the morning, as well as a Nintendo Wii, a Sony PlayStation 2 and two swords reported stolen in a separate breaking and entering in early December.
Police also found several items of drug paraphernalia. Warrants were issued for Lewis’ arrest on charges of felony breaking and entering, felony larceny, felony possession of stolen goods, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of stolen goods.
Anyone with information on Lewis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Hickory Police Department.
