A Salisbury woman facing burglary charges eluded police for almost a year before being arrested Thursday.

Monique Georgette Mashore, 20, of 209 Elm St. was arrested for first-degree burglary, larceny after breaking and entering and injury to personal property. Warrants for the charges were originally issued on Jan. 1 of this year, but police were unable to locate Mashore.

She was placed under $50,000 secured bond pending a first-appearance hearing Monday in Rowan County District Court, the warrants said.

Mashore is charged with breaking into the residence of Charles A. Everhart at 402 E. Henderson St. sometime between 10 p.m. on Dec. 30, 2005, and 4 a.m. on Dec. 31 and taking a car stereo speaker worth $300. She is also charged with damaging a coffee table valued at $100, a DVD player valued at $150 and a chair valued at $175, the warrants said.

The damage was in excess of $200.
