Home security footage led to the arrest of a habitual felon for breaking into a home on Buffalo Shoals Road.
Daniel Ray Bellamy, 36, of Gastonia was charged with breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering, both felonies. Bond was set at $10,000 by a Gaston County magistrate.
Iredell Sheriff Darren Campbell said a break-in report was received July 11. Detective D. Wyatt was assigned to investigate the break-in in the 2300 block of Buffalo Shoals Road.
After a canvas of the neighborhood, security footage was located.
Wyatt traced some of the reported stolen property to a gold dealer in Cramerton.
Bellamy was identified as the person who sold the jewelry the same day of the break-in, Campbell said.
Wyatt recovered the stolen property and obtained warrants for Bellamy’s arrest, Campbell said.
Bellamy was arrested Wednesday in Gaston County on the two felony charges.
Bellamy has a criminal history including 11 counts of breaking and entering, three counts of breaking into a motor vehicle, one count of larceny, possession of stolen goods, possession of a stolen vehicle, larceny of a firearm, obtaining property by false pretense and possession of cocaine, and misdemeanor larceny and cruelty to animals charges.
