DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – Durham police are searching for a teen who has been charged in connection with more than three dozen larcenies and vehicle break-ins over the last six months.
Courvosier Cox, 16, was arrested last week following a vehicle break-in on Foster Street. Durham police said a distinctive Coach purse, a wallet, credit cards and other items were taken from a van. The credit cards stolen from the van were used over the next couple days.
Durham police were able to link Cox to the fraudulent usage of the credit cards.
Cox was arrested and charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense, breaking and entering to a motor vehicle, financial card fraud, misdemeanor larceny, two counts of identity theft and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense, police said.
Authorities executed a search warrant at Cox’s home and found various stolen items.
Among the items found in Cox’s home included the Coach purse, seven laptop computers, 16 cell phones, one multimedia projector (stolen from a local high school), six iPads, one violin and 11 backpacks, police said.
Durham police said most of the items were taken from unlocked vehicles or unlocked buildings.
More charges were filed against Cox Monday after the search warrant was executed.
Those charges include 27 counts of possession of stolen property, one count of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, one count of financial card theft, one count of misdemeanor larceny, two counts of identity theft and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
