Couple Charged in Iredell County Break-Ins Now Charged in Lincoln County

29-year-old Robert Dale Morton and 38-year-old Amanda Sue Jones, both from Huntersville, have been charged by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Detectives in connection with a break-in at a storage facility in Denver, North Carolina. They were both charged with one felony count each of breaking & entering a motor vehicle, larceny, possession of stolen goods, and breaking & entering a building.

They were charged after Iredell County Sheriff’s Detectives alerted Lincoln County Officers regarding the break-in at the storage facility on the 500 block of N.C. Highway 16 Business North. As previously reported on WHKY, Iredell County Officers arrested Morton and Jones on January 8 in connection with storage unit break-ins in Iredell County. During an interview with the suspects, they admitted to the break-in in Denver.

That incident occurred in late December 2023 or early January of 2024 at Loftis Mini Storage. The couple drove from Huntersville to Lincoln County and went to the storage facility where Morton is accused of cutting the wire fence to gain entry. He allegedly broke into several units, but found nothing to take. He then returned to a trailer parked inside the facility and stole a number of tools valued at $4,000.

Morton and Jones remain in the Iredell County Detention Center with bond for each set at $250,000, secured. Iredell County Officers served the Lincoln County warrants on January 13. They’ll appear in a Lincoln County courtroom on January 22 with an Iredell County court date coming up on January 30.
