ALEXANDER COUNTY, N.C. — Deputies have arrested two people they’ve accused of stealing $200,000 worth of antiques from a home in Alexander County last month.

Investigators said Michael Knepp and Vicki McPherson stole the antiques from the home in the Bethlehem community on December 29.

Detectives said McPherson was an in-home health care worker for the victim.

Among the items stolen were an antique silver tea service, several pre-WWII Lionel model trains, assorted jewelry and a U.S. Navy sword that belonged to a Rear Admiral and winner of the Navy Cross.

Deputies were able to recover the stolen items after locating some of the stolen silver at a business in Hickory.
