High Point police arrest suspects in interstate theft ring

HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point police said warrants have been issued for four suspects accused of being part of an interstate theft ring involving heavy equipment.

Police said three of the suspects have been arrested and one more is still wanted. They said two are in the Guilford County Jail and another is currently incarcerated in South Carolina.

Police said the suspects were arrested after a nearly yearlong investigation involving a theft ring stealing numerous vehicles, lawn equipment, and other heavy equipment from at least four states.

Authorities said equipment was reported stolen in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. Police said the estimated value of the property stolen runs into the millions of dollars. They said more charges may be forthcoming from other jurisdictions.

High Point police said Antonio Lamont Campbell, 23, of Adams Run, South Carolina, and Yuri Delandre Monroe, of High Point, have both been charged with 12 counts of felony larceny and two counts of receiving stolen property.

Campbell and Monroe remain in the Guilford County Jail, Campbell on a $400,000 bond and Monroe on a $300,000 bond.

Authorities said 27-year-old Maurice Lamar Mitchell is still sought and warrants are outstanding for his arrest.

Police said 30-year-old Christopher Black is currently incarcerated in South Carolina and awaiting extradition to North Carolina to face charges.
