Three charged in Walmart larceny spree

CONCORD — Police charged three people on Tuesday after identifying them as the shoplifters in a series of recent Walmart larcenies.
According to police, Jerry and Penny Hedrick, 6012 Hardwood Lane, and Joseph David Lamb, 608 Rogers Lake Road, were arrested after media coverage of the larcenies helped investigators locate the suspects.
Police said 42-year-old Jerry Hedrick set small fires inside a Concord Walmart Supercenter on Oct. 29 and fled the building with a television. Hedrick is also accused of stealing from the same Walmart at about 8 a.m. the next morning by leaving through an emergency exit.
Hedrick was charged with felony larceny by removing a shoplifting device, felony burning a building used for trade and felony larceny from a merchant by using an emergency exit.
Hedrick’s wife, 41-year-old Penny, was charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of a felony. Police identified Penny as the driver in both incidents.
Joseph David Lamb, 32, was also charged with felony larceny from a merchant by using an emergency exit, police said, stemming from another Oct. 30 incident. He was also charged with accessory after the fact of a felony for alleged involvement in an Oct. 29 incident.
All three were transported to Cabarrus County Jail.
Jerry Hedrick was in jail Friday morning under a $25,000 bond. Lamb was also in jail, under a $5,000 bond. Penny Hedrick was not listed on the jail’s website.
