Detectives from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a 22 year old Pittsboro man for Breaking Entering and Larceny following a joint investigation with the Siler City Police Department.

The investigation began May 27, when officers from Siler City Police department responded to a citizen complaint of a man walking down North Tenth Ave. carrying a long barreled firearm. The suspect was stopped and identified as Thomas Matthew Coore of Lystra Church Road, Pittsboro. A check of Mr. Coore’s criminal record revealed that he was a convicted felon and therefore forbidden to possess any firearm under NC General Statutes. Coore was arrested and placed in Chatham County Jail under $500.00 secured bond.

On May 29th, Bobby Joe Campbell of Cedar Village Road, Chapel Hill reported that his home had been broken into within the last five days and a shotgun was missing. Witnesses placed Thomas Coore in the area carrying a shotgun several days prior to the report.

Mr. Campbell subsequently identified the recovered shotgun as his property. Detective Percy Crutchfield charged Coore with Felonious Breaking and Entering, Felonious Larceny and Felonious Possession of Stolen Property. He was placed under an additional $500.00 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in district court in Pittsboro on June 15.
