A woman and a friend are both in jail after deputies say the two stole from the woman's grandparents while she was house sitting for them.
Laura Horne and Alexander Talbot, both of Newport, were arrested Sunday night on larceny charges.
Carteret County deputies say the two left, taking with them grandpa's .40 caliber handgun and a flat screen television.
Both items have since been recovered. Talbot, who initially bonded out of jail, was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of stolen property. Deputies say they found him in possession with the handgun after his initial release from jail.
