SILER CITY, N.C. (WNCN) — Items that had been pawned that matched stolen articles from a string of break-ins led to the identification and arrest of Tina Marie Beers, 38, of Siler City, deputies said.

The search turned up mulitple pieces of jewelry, perfume, clothes, shoes and bags related to other break-in cases, the release said.
