Ex-Clerk Charged With Stealing Court Evidence

A former Dare County deputy court clerk is accused of stealing cocaine from the Clerk of Court's evidence locker.

A 17 month investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment and arrest of Lisa Brickhouse of Kill Devil Hills.

Brickhouse was picked up Friday on charges of tampering with evidence and several felony charges related to possessing the cocaine.

She was released from the Dare County Detention Center after posting a $27,500 bond. No word yet on when she'll make her first court appearance.
