Two people face more charges in a string of car break-ins in New Bern.
Samantha Jones and Andrew Newton were first arrested last month after police say they spotted them trying to break into cars at a school system building on Highway 55.
Jones faces additional charges of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, two counts of felony conspiracy, financial card theft, larceny, two counts of possession of stolen property, obtaining property by false pretense, forgery and uttering. Newton is charged with two additional counts of felony conspiracy and possession of stolen property.
So far the pair have been charged in 14 cases, but police say they expect even more charges as their investigation continues.
Most of the cars targeted were unlocked and had valuables left in plain view. Police say money, purses, credit cards and electronics were taken from the vehicles.
