Man accused of stealing from Richmond County construction site

ROCKINGHAM — A Scotland County man is facing charges related to a theft in Richmond County.

Zachery Earl Cribb, 25, of Laurel Hill, is accused of breaking into a trailer at a construction site and stealing assorted tools on Feb. 16, according to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Cribb was arrested May 9 by the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office.

For the alleged Richmond County theft, Cribb is charged with breaking and entering a trailer, felony larceny and injury to personal property and was given a $75,000 secured bond.

Investigators say Cribb is being held on an additional $100,000 secured bond for charges in Scotland County.

Records with the N.C. Court System show Cribb has a pending charge of assault and battery in Richmond County.

Cribb also has the following pending charges in Scotland County: five counts each of larceny of a motor vehicle and obtaining property by false pretenses; two counts of misdemeanor larceny; one count each of possession of methamphetamine, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He has court dates scheduled in Scotland County for May 24 and 25, and in Richmond County for June 7 and July 20.

Online records with the N.C. Department of Adult Correction show Cribb was previously convicted in Richmond County in 2019 on five counts of felony breaking and entering, and one count each of felony larceny, larceny of firearms and breaking into a house of worship.


Cribb was initially given probation, which was revoked six months later when he was convicted on three counts of larceny of a motor vehicle.
He was imprisoned from Aug. 21, 2019 until Sept. 30, 2021.

During that time, he was convicted in Scotland County on two counts each of felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering, as well as one count each of possession of stolen goods, receiving a stolen vehicle, larceny of a motor vehicle, and burning personal property.

On May 9, 2022 — the same day his parole was scheduled to end — Cribb was hit with a post-release revocation and went back to prison until his release on Jan. 6.

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