A Roanoke Rapids area woman has been charged with multiple firearm larceny counts following investigation of a December residential break-in in the Aurelian Springs area.


Chief Deputy Scott Hall of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said Christine Cherie Richardson, 47, was familiar with the victim in the case.

She faces 21 counts of larceny of a firearm and a count each of breaking and entering, felony larceny and injury to real property.

In addition to firearms, personal items such as jewelry were taken. A monetary value of the items stolen was not immediately available. Hall said the firearms have not been recovered.

The charges stem from a December 18 report in which deputies and detectives responded.

Richardson, who was arrested Tuesday, was placed in the Halifax County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond and has an initial court date of February 7.

Hall said additional arrests are possible.
