SWANSBORO, NC (AP) — A Swansboro woman has been accused of
stealing guns, a guitar and fishing poles from a Stella residence
and then setting the house on fire.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Thursday that
42-year-old Malissa Lynn Smith has been charged by Onslow County
sheriff’s deputies with second-degree arson, possession of stolen
goods, misdemeanor larceny and three counts of larceny of guns.

Authorities say Smith entered the home April 9 and took two
shotguns, a rifle, fishing poles and an acoustic guitar. The items
were valued at $1,300.

Smith was being held in the Onslow County Jail. It was unclear
whether she has an attorney.
