Two Bladen County men have been arrested after Sheriff’s Office investigators recovered more than $4,000 worth of stolen property that had been taken in break-ins on Center Road, said Sheriff James McVicker.

Louis Dicicco III, 56 of Village Street in Bladenboro, and Ashley Wade Conner, 38, of 8th Street in Elizabethtown have each been charged with two counts of felonious breaking and entering, two counts of felonious larceny and two
counts of felonious possession of stolen goods. Each received $30,000 secured bonds.

“Investigators were able to recover stolen property and break up a breaking and entering team operating in the Bladenboro area,” McVicker said. “Our investigators worked very hard to recover this property and make these arrests.”

Investigators have recovered two generators, multiple fishing poles and gear, motorcycle helmets, a Honda Motorcycle, weed eater, boat motor, welding machine and leads.

“My officers are still working this case and hope to recover additional property,” McVicker said.
