Hamlet Police seek suspect

HAMLET — Police are asking for help locating a man suspected of selling stolen property.

The Hamlet Police Department issued an online wanted poster on Facebook Monday for Christopher Todd Greene.

Greene, 53, is wanted on charges of possession of stolen property and obtaining property by false pretenses.

Anyone with information on Greene’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the department at 910-582-2551 or Richmond County Crimestoppers at 910-997-5454.

Online court records show Greene is already facing multiple traffic citations and criminal charges: two counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance; one count each of possession of a firearm by a felon; possession of stolen goods or property; maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place for a controlled substance; possession of drug paraphernalia; and second-degree trespassing.

His upcoming court dates are scheduled for June 13 and July 6.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Greene was first convicted in 1998 on multiple charges in the western region of the state:

  • Watauga County – financial card fraud, cheating for property or services, reckless driving, operating a vehicle with no license, failing to obey police
  • Avery County – possession with intent to sell a Schedule II controlled substance

Probation on the drug and fraud charges was revoked, resulting in a 13-month incarceration.


Records show Greene was later convicted in New Hanover County of embezzlement (1995) and possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance (1996).

Greene has also been convicted of financial card fraud in Union County (2004) and misdemeanor larceny in Richmond County (2010).

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
