Update: Man Wanted On Gun Theft & Safe Cracking Charges Caught

The Carteret County Sheriff's Office says Christopher Wilson was arrested in Greenville around 2:15 this morning.

Someone recognized Wilson as being wanted and notified a Greenville Police Officer that he was inside a club. Wilson has already been taken back to Carteret County this morning where he is in jail under an $85,000 bond.

His first court appearance will be this morning. Wilson was wanted for stealing guns from a house in Morehead City, and for safecracking.

Original Story:

A Greenville man is wanted in Carteret County on gun theft and safe cracking charges.

    Are 5 guns enough? Let me see, Shoot skeet - shotgun. Shoot competive pistol high power - auto pistol, Shoot rimfire rifle competively - speciality rifle, Practice rimfire pistol because the center fire has become expensive - pistol, Hunt geese, another shotgun with longer barrel, Hunt deer, two other rifles, one for bush and one for open areas, Hunt bear and elk - another high power rifle, that is eight and I'm not even done hunting, target shooting, skeet, trap or varmint hunting. I think it would take about 12, at least. Sure do enjoy my constitutional rights.

    Anonymous ... 5 guns ... thats about right. The average person I know has between 3-5 and that is just someone who may have a pistol or 2, a shotgun and rifle. Then consider that some people like me are handed down guns. I was given an old 22 rifle from my father that I was told that my grandmother and grandfather used to shoot squirrels with rabbits and that my dad and his brothers were taught to shoot on. Then there are people who like to exercise there 2nd amendment rights and those who may hunt. So different guns have different uses so its normal to me for someone to have multiple guns.

    I know this boys family. I know his brother, sister, and cousins. Me and this boy went to the same kind of church. At one point of his life this boy was a saved christian, he served God, and he had plenty of church friends. I used to work with him long ago. I knew his brother was a criminal. C.J seemed to be better than that. He flipped burgers like no other. Now it's hard to believe that he is following in the footsteps of his brother. His cousin (we shall use the name L.L) was no good either. I couldn't stand her, but C.J seemed to be different. God will forgive you C.J. He wants you to come back to him. I hope you read my post, b/c when you were in church you were a good boy. You loved the LORD with all your heart,mind, and strength. God is waiting for you C.J.!!!
