WAKE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE — Wake County Sheriff's Office

— Wake County sheriff’s deputies Tuesday added charges of breaking into a home, stealing several rifles, stealing a truck and burning the truck against a 22-year-old woman who has been facing a growing list of charges since deputies first arrested her on Jan. 13.

In the latest round of charges in arrest warrants served on Chelsea Marie Dasnoit at the Wake County Detention Center, where she was being held, deputies accused her of breaking into a home on Lahoya Farm Road in the Knightdale portion of the county on Dec. 1 and stealing a bow, a computer, cash, jewelry and seven rifles, including a .50-caliber, muzzle-loading, black-powder gun.

One warrant charged that she stole a 2005 Ford F250 pickup, and another accused her of burning it.

The formal charges were two counts of felony breaking and entering, two counts of felony larceny after entering, felony larceny of a motor vehicle and burning personal property.

On Jan. 13, deputies charged Dasnoit, who listed a Wendell address of 409 Carrington Woods Drive, with simple assault, injury to personal property and a probation violation.

Dasnoit had been put on probation in August following a conviction for driving while impaired, according to state prison records.

While she was being held on the Jan. 13 charges, deputies charged her on Jan. 16 with two counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery, first-degree burglary, attempted first-degree burglary, felony larceny and larceny after breaking and entering.

Pending a court appearance Wednesday, Dasnoit was being held on a total bond of $538,500.

The prison records show that Dasnoit served a bit less than five month of an eight-month sentence in 2011 for a 2010 larceny.

In that case, records show she had been given a suspended sentence and put on probation, but that was revoked.
