Another $19,900 Recovered In Pitt County Barber Theft

Deputies say they recovered another $19,900 that was stolen from a Pitt County barber last week.

Investigators say Joseph Vick broke into the home of Linwood Baker, a barber shop owner, while his alleged accomplice got a haircut. Deputies say about $100,000 was stolen.

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office says the robbers also stole other items from the home on Highway 33. Two of three revolvers taken were recovered, as well as gold coins and about $46,000 to $47,000 in cash.

New shoes, clothing, and cigarettes, were some of the items authorities say 26-year-old Vick purchased with the cash.

While some of the money has been recovered, Pitt County deputies say $54,000 was spent on various things including drugs and prostitutes.

Twenty-five-year-old Justin Page, the alleged accomplice in the case, was arrested Monday afternoon.
