The Henderson County Sheriff's Department's burglary squad has charged a 42-year-old Hendersonville man with 21 charges including felony larceny, breaking into a motor vehicle, possessing stolen goods, obtaining property by false pretenses and damaging property.

 

The charges against Philip Eric Stanford add to seven charges he already faced. He is also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Sheriff's investigators charged a 16-year-old girl with some of the crimes along with him

The sheriff's directed enforcement unit, which concentrates on break-ins and thefts from homes and businesses, also charged Autumn Maybin, 16, of Hendersonville, with 10 counts as in connection with Stanford's charges of possessing stolen goods, breaking and entering, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen property. She was jailed under a $15,000 bond. A juvenile was taken into custody for offenses related to these arrests.

The group had targeted large tractor batteries, large radiators from bulldozers and other similar type materials that could be sold at metal recycling facilities for cash or check, the sheriff's department said in a news release. All three subjects remain in custody as the investigation continues.

The directed enforcement unit, created by Sheriff Charlie McDonald, is aimed to cracking down on property crime, which the sheriff said is usually drug related.
