Published 12:00 am Thursday, March 17, 2011

The former fiancee of a Woodleaf resident was charged with felony larceny after authorities said she traded several of his guns for drugs.
Angie Marie McFarland, 32, of 574 Boxwood Road, was arrested Tuesday during the service of a search warrant in a Davie County home, and given a $10,000 secured bond.
According to the report, deputies with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a larceny at 1184 Old Oak Road on Jan 30, the home of Frederick Bowers.
Bowers told authorities he noticed screens missing from his back windows, and when he looked, several guns were missing from his gun cabinet, and were nowhere to be found in his home.
McFarland said she opened the windows and may have left them unlocked, the report said.
The case was assigned to investigators.
On Feb. 23 McFarland did not show up at the sheriff’s office for a meeting with detectives. Deputies called Bowers to tell him his fiancee was a person of interest in the case, the report said.
Bowers told investigators he and McFarland were no longer engaged, and she had moved out, the report said. Investigators made contact with McFarland Feb. 28, and she admitted to trading the guns for controlled substances.
A warrant was issued and she was arrested Tuesday in Davie County.
