Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Thursday June 17, 2021 Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies responded to a larceny in the Covedale Court south of Troutman. The victim told the deputies, the suspect was a white male driving a gold in color Pontiac passenger car, and was on video footage taking a package from the front porch of the home.

 On Friday, June 18, 2021 a report was received from the Exit 42 Self Storage located at 139 Houston Road near Troutman. When deputies arrived on scene, they learned several storage units had been broken into. Video footage from surveillance cameras showed a white male in the gold in color Pontiac passenger car breaking into the units. 

 Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Detective K. Sherard was assigned the cases, and based on the video footage was quickly able to verify the suspect was the same person at both crime scenes.

 Another breaking and entering was reported at Rowboat Dock and Dredge located at 858 Williamson Road near Mooresville. Detective Sherard met with Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputy J. Young at this scene. Surveillance footage was viewed and the same suspect was also responsible for this crime as well, this time a large amount of tools were taken.

 Detective Sherard was able to identify the suspect in these cases as, Richard Todd Waugh of Statesville. Detective Sherard interviewed associates of Waugh and confirmed he was driving a gold in color Pontiac Grand Prix. Detective Sherard searched for the stolen property from these cases, discovering Richard Waugh had pawned tools in Statesville. Detective Sherard was able to recover these items.

 Based on all of the video footage and other evidence obtained throughout these investigations, Detective Sherard was able to apply for and receive multiple felony arrest warrants against Waugh.

 On Thursday, June 24, 2021, Richard Todd Waugh was found sleeping in the Pontiac Grand Prix, and arrested in Mecklenburg County on: Three Counts of Felony Larceny, Three Counts of Felony Breaking and Entering, Two Counts of Felony Larceny after Breaking and Entering, Misdemeanor First Degree Trespass, and Felony Obtaining Property by False Pretense these charges.
