Sheriff: Woman does detective work, determines Xbox thief

Authorities charged a China Grove man with breaking into his neighbor’s home and stealing her son’s Xbox games. The woman did her own digging and found the games had been stolen and pawned, a report said.

Rowan Sheriff’s deputies issued a citation for Dustin Reid Lackey, 32, of the 1000 block of Lackey Lane, with misdemeanor breaking and entering.

The victim, who lives across the street from Lackey, said someone stole the games and she had a “hunch” it was Lackey. In the past she’d heard Lackey talk about Pearl’s Pawn and Gun shop in China Grove so she checked it out. The woman discovered her son’s six games behind the counter. An employee at the pawn shop said a man by the name of Dustin pawned the items June 11. The woman filed a report with investigators on June 12. Lackey is expected in court in July. Lackey was convicted in 2006 of felony credit card theft.
