Craven County woman offers reward after vandals steal electrical wiring from home

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

A Craven County woman is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to a thief.

45-year-old Jessica Lewis said someone broke into her newly constructed home on Sand Hill Road and stole the electrical wiring.

She doesn't live at the home yet, but she noticed Monday morning large holes in the wall.

She said a vandal broke the drywall in nearly every room in the house and ripped the wiring out. The vandal left a footprint on the wall, but Lewis believes a sledgehammer was used.

She said the house didn't have any locks on the doors because the home is brand new.

"I felt violated that you know, someone could do this to me, or to anyone, to their property. It's more a sense of security. My sense of security is gone," said Jessica Lewis, theft victim.

Lewis estimates it will cost between $15,000 - $20,000 to repair the damage.
