Virginia couple charged in Hatteras Island break-in

On May 25, Dare Sheriff’s investigators received information from the Hampton Police Division in Hampton, Va., about a shooting that had occurred in its jurisdiction.  Hampton Police interviews indicated that the gun used in that shooting may have been stolen from Hatteras Island. 

At that time, there was no gun reported stolen on Hatteras Island.  The next day, Dare Sheriff’s investigators received a report from a Haw River, N. C., man reporting that his vehicle had been broken into while he was on vacation in Frisco.  The victim reported that his handgun had been stolen in the break-in. He had not noticed the gun missing until he returned home.  

Investigators were able to identify the gun recovered by the Hampton Police, a 9mm pistol, as the gun that was stolen in the Frisco break-in.  Dare Sheriff’s investigators traveled to Hampton to interview the persons involved in the incident there.  Upon conducting interviews and discussing the case with Hampton Police, Dare investigators submitted indictments on a Virginia couple to the Dare County Grand Jury, who in turn, issued True Bills of Indictment on the two individuals. 

Since the suspects reside in Virginia, they were entered into the National Crime Information Center as fugitives.  They were subsequently picked up by Virginia authorities.  One of the suspects is still in custody in Virginia on charges there.  The other suspect was returned to Dare County on Oct. 15, where the Bills of Indictment were served. 

The suspect, Autumn Lauren Smith, 23, of Longwood Drive in Hampton has been charged with aiding and abetting in the breaking and entering of a motor vehicle and aiding and abetting in the larceny of a firearm.  She is being held at the Dare County Detention Center in lieu of $500 bond.

The other suspect is Caleb Sawyer Barnes, 19, of Landfall Drive in Williamsburg, Va., and he is in the custody of the Hampton Police, pending the outcome of charges there.  He is charged by Dare County with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, larceny of a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
