Woman found guilty by jury of felony larceny and reached status of habitual felon

During the Feb. 11, 2019 term of Onslow County Superior Court, Pamela McGregor was found guilty by a jury of her peers of felony larceny and the status of habitual felon.

The defendant had previously been convicted on four counts of possession of stolen property, on nineteen (19) counts of misdemeanor larceny, obtaining property by false pretense, providing fictitious information to law enforcement, five (5) counts of resisting a law enforcement officer, simple assault, three (3) counts of shoplifting, two (2) counts of felony larceny, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, second degree trespass, possession of drug paraphernalia, two (2) counts of possession of cocaine, maintaining a vehicle, dwelling, or place for controlled substances, and other traffic-related matters.  These convictions all occurred in Wake County, North Carolina before the defendant committed the current offense of felony larceny in Onslow County.

The defendant was represented by Thomasine Moore.  The State was represented by Assistant District Attorney Walter H. Rodriguez.  The Honorable Judge Charles Henry was the presiding judge.

The defendant was sentenced to a minimum of 77 months and a maximum of 105 months in the North Carolina Department of Adult Correction.

The State’s evidence showed defendant entered the Cato Store in Jacksonville North Carolina on Nov. 23, 2016, in the evening hours.  As the defendant walked around the store, the Cato manager engaged her and assisted the defendant in her shopping needs.  The defendant brought items to the counter for purchase but continued after her purchase around the store forcefully removing anti-theft devices from merchandise.  She was observed by the manager appearing to stuff items into the Cato shopping bag before exiting the store.  The Cato manager retrieved the bag after a brief struggle on the sidewalk outside the store and obtained items which the defendant had stolen from the store and removed the inventory control device.  Defendant requested the manager not call Law Enforcement and allow her to pay for the items.  The Jacksonville Police Department arrived on scene and began their investigation locating the removed inventory control devices identified by the Cato Manager and the damaged property retrieved by the Store.

This defendant had a long record in Wake County and she certainly deserved an active sentence for her criminal actions in Onslow County.  This office is very appreciative of the diligence of the Cato manager and for the quick response of the Jacksonville Police Department. This defendant received a substantial sentence as a habitual felon and it is hoped that these type of active sentences will serve as a deterrent to other thieves and help protect the merchants of Jacksonville.
