LOUISBURG -- A Louisburg man accused of a vehicle theft and multiple breaking and enterings had his initial court appearance this week.
It was not clear when Charlie Brantley Hudson III would next appear in court.
According to authorities, personnel at Richards Oil Company in the 2000 block of NC 39 North reported on Feb. 6 that a vehicle had been stolen.
The next day -- at 2 a.m. -- officers responded to an alarm activation at Royal Food Mart in the 1900 block of N.C. 39 North and found the building had been broken into. Hours later, the Dollar General in the 5900 block of N.C. 561 also suffered a break-in, authorities said.
Hudson, 49, was arrested in Vance County on Feb. 8.
He was charged with one count of larceny of a motor vehicle, one count of felony larceny, two counts of breaking and entering, and two counts of larceny after breaking and entering.
Hudson was placed in the Franklin County jail in lieu of a $40,000 bond, authorities said. Hudson, of Moulton Road, had an initial appearance in court on Feb. 17.
