Four men charged with theft, other charges in lockbox larceny

PAMLICO COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – Four men have been charged after an investigation into the theft of money from lockboxes in Pamlico County.

The Pamlico County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Dawson Pipkin, of Grantsboro, 21-year-old Hunter Woods, of Grantsboro, 20-year-old Isaiah Frye, of Reelsboro, and 18-year-old Brandon Campbell, of Bayboro were arrested in the case.

Here is how they were charged.

Dawson Pipkin:

  • One count of breaking and entering felony
  • One count of larceny after breaking and entering
  • Four counts of safecracking felony
  • Three counts of misdemeanor larceny
  • Four counts of injury to personal property

Hunter Woods:

  • Two counts of safecracking felony
  • Two counts of misdemeanor larceny
  • Two counts of injury to personal property

Isaiah Frye:

  • One count of breaking and entering felony
  • One count of larceny after breaking and entering
  • Four counts of safecracking felony
  • Three counts of misdemeanor larceny
  • Four counts of injury to personal property

Brandon Campbell:

  • One count of breaking and entering felony
  • One count of larceny after breaking and entering
  • Four counts of safecracking felony
  • Three counts of misdemeanor larceny
  • Four counts of injury to personal property.

Deputies say Pipkin, Campbell, and Woods were found in the Pamlico County Detention Center as Campbell was in custody for initial involvement in the case and Pipkin and Woods were in custody on unrelated charges.

They say three of the four were also responsible for a breaking and entering in the Lowland community of Pamlico County where several power tools and TVs were taken. All four appeared in court Wednesday and have been placed in jail under $35,000 secured bonds each.

Deputies say surveillance video and tips led them to arrest Campbell earlier this week for stealing money at boat ramps that operated under the honor system.

They said padlocks were cut off the payment boxes and money removed.
