Two charged in outbuilding break-ins, thefts
High Point police on Friday announced that they have linked two people to a series of break-ins and thefts in city neighborhoods.
From July 2012 to September 2012, several outbuildings were broken into in east central and northeastern neighborhoods. Lawn equipment and various tools were targeted for theft. Investigations by property crimes detectives led to the arrest of Donald McInnis, 44, who was also charged as a habitual felon in connection to nearly 24 break-ins, police said.
McInnis has since been sentenced to 20 to 36 months in prison.
Michael Gaddy, 20, was charged with eight break-ins and 19 counts of obtaining property by false pretenses, police said. He remains jailed under a $70,000 bond.
