Accused scrap metal theft lands man in jail on $212,000 bond

The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office has charged a man with larceny and being a habitual felon after a traffic stop turned up a truck filled with scrap metal and items reported stolen.
The Sheriff’s Office received a call Monday about someone inquiring about scrap metal on Blandwood Drive in Concord. The caller gave the vehicle and suspect description and direction of travel. A responding deputy located the suspect vehicle on U.S. 49 near Zion Church Road, with the entire bed of the vehicle loaded with scrap metal. Upon requesting a registration check of the vehicle, it was found that the license plate did not belong on the vehicle and there was no insurance on the vehicle.
The driver was identified as Thomas Eugene Hines, 44. A property owner on Blandwood Drive was contacted and property from inside the suspect vehicle was identified as being stolen from this property.
Hines was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor larceny, three counts breaking and entering of an outbuilding, three counts larceny after breaking and/or entering, one count felony larceny, being a habitual felon and fictitious tag displayed. He is being held under a secured $212,000 bond in the Cabarrus County Jail.
He is a suspect in incidents from Concord, Midland and Kannapolis.
