RALEIGH — A 24-year-old woman who told police she is a self-employed tattoo artist was arrested Wednesday by Raleigh police, who accused her of breaking into several homes and of stealing a television, various valuables and two handguns.
In arrest warrants, police charged Leticia Estelle Johnson of 121 Smith Rock Drive in Holly Springs with five counts of felony breaking and entering, one count of attempted breaking and entering, three counts of larceny and two counts of larceny of a firearm.
