Lenoir man convicted as habitual felon
A Lenoir man was convicted Monday in Burke Superior Court on charges of breaking and entering, larceny and being a habitual felon, and was sentenced to six and a half to eight years 10 months in prison.
Larry Dale Greene Jr., 32, of 4089 Little John Church Road was charged following a Dec. 4, 2012, incident in which Greene, Scottie Allen Perkins, 31, of Spann Street in Rutherford College and 31-year-old Jealene Nicole Kistler, of Wilson Heights Avenue in Hildebran were accused of breaking through the front door of a residence at 207 Drexel Road in Morganton and stealing a 9mm semi-automatic pistol and jewelry, said Detective Stephen Ritchie of the Burke County Sheriff's Office.
The jewelry was later recovered from a pawn shop, Ritchie said.
The N.C. Division of Adult Correction shows Greene has been convicted of various felonies over the years, including possession of stolen goods in 2003, breaking and entering and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance in 2004, credit card theft in 2004, and receiving a stolen vehicle in 2011.
