ROCKINGHAM — Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputies have charged an East Rockingham woman with breaking into her neighbors’ buildings and stealing from one of them.


Jennifer Lynetta Parker, 27, of Aleo Second Avenue, is accused of breaking into a building on the same street March 10 and stealing a headlamp flashlight, another flashlight, two pocket knives and $50 in cash, according to an arrest warrant.

Another warrant alleges Parker broke into a building on April 7.

She was arrested booked into the Richmond County Jail on April 2, where she remains under a $20,000 total secured bond — $10,000 for the above alleged crimes and $10,000 for a misdemeanor parole violation, jail records, which have her listed as “Jennifer Lynette Parker,” show.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction, which have her listed as “Jennifer Laynette Parker,” show she was convicted March 14 for possessing stolen goods. She was given a 12-month suspended sentence.

Parker was previously convicted of misdemeanor larceny in 2017.

Online court records, which have her middle name spelled both “Laynette” and “Lynetta,” show she has pending felony charges of possession of a stolen firearm, larceny and attempting to obtain property by false pretenses, as well as several misdemeanor probation violations.

She has court dates scheduled for May 6 and 9.

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