LAWMEN: Couple Tied To Hog Theft

A Greene County couple has been arrested and charged with stealing more than 100 hogs from a farm and selling them to a stockyard.

Sheriff Lemmie Smith says 24-year-old Cherrette Elkins and 26-year-old Kevin Elkins of Snow Hill were arrested Wednesday in Lenoir County.

They face charges of obtaining property under false pretenses and larceny of livestock after a six-month investigation by the Greene County Sheriff's Office.

Capt. Daniel Hawkins says the couple stole 103 hogs from Murphy Brown Farms and sold them to a local stockyard for about $5,000. Hawkins says he obtained an arrest warrant for the couple in November, but authorities had not been able to track them down.

    This couple need some counseling because something is wrong. If they need money, there is work in Snow Hill like McDonald's, Fast Break, Food Lion, etc., and people will let you do yard work or house work for money.

    I am curious if the meat made anyone sick? Murphy Brown puts additives and medications into the feed. Some of this medication has a 45 day withdraw per the FDA before they can be slaughtered? These two endangered anyone who had eaten this fine swine.

    She looks pretty smart until you read the head-lines and that her glasses either don't work for her or she knowingly married an ugly white guy who steals pigs.
