MONTGOMERY COUNTY, N.C. — Two people face several dozen total charges in connection with break-ins and thefts at a lakeside camping resort in Montgomery County over the last few weeks.

Daniel Tyler Huneycutt, 19, of China Grove, and Bryan Matthew Balser, 21, of Albemarle, were arrested on Wednesday.

Montgomery County deputies said they directly responded to 21 reports of break-ins at Twin Harbor Camping Resort on Lake Tillery just west of Mount Gilead. Those reports were made between Feb. 24 and Wednesday, deputies said.

An investigation determined the suspects were responsible for about 30 break-ins at the resort, deputies said.

Items stolen included money, several flat screen TVs, computers, jewelry, firearms, alcohol and prescription medication, deputies said.

Both face the same number of charges: 15 counts of felony larceny, 21 counts of second-degree burglary, 15 counts of felony possession of stolen goods or property and three counts of larceny of a firearm.

Both were placed in the Rowan County Jail under $1 million bonds. The suspects face numerous other charges in Rowan, Anson and Stanley counties, deputies said.

The resort has more than 1,500 lots, and about 150 families live there full-time, according to the resort’s website.
