A woman called police Monday evening to report that someone had stolen her daughter’s playhouse full of dolls from their yard.
Police say the thieves turned out to be the girl’s aunt and uncle.
Police have charged Sozan Idward Abboud, 38, and her husband Idward Abboud, 61, with one felony count each of breaking and entering and two felony counts each of larceny, according to records filed at the Wake County Clerk of Courts Office.
The playhouse was locked and contained about 50 Lalaloopsy dolls, popular toys with names such as “Jewel Sparkles, “Crumbs Sugar Cookie” and “Spot Splatter Splash,” according to a search warrant filed Tuesday.

In addition to the playhouse, investigators think the Abbouds stole a black Sentry safe that contained a black Glock 23 handgun, a black holster and magazine, $600 in cash, birth certificates and Social Security cards, Raleigh Officer K.A. Horan wrote in the search warrant application.
Sozan Abboud’s brother called her Monday night, asking about the stolen white playhouse with pink shutters, Horan wrote. Sozan Abboud reportedly told her brother “that she did not care and to call the police,” Horan wrote.
A short time later, an officer drove past Sozan Abboud’s home on Palafox Court, off New Hope Road, and saw the playhouse, valued at $8,000, sitting in her yard, according to the search warrant.
A neighbor later told the girl’s mother that he saw a black flatbed truck parked in front of her home on St. James Church Road loading the playhouse, Horan wrote.
Investigators used the warrant to search the Abbouds’ home early Tuesday morning. They seized a black Sentry safe, a white playhouse with pink shutters, a black iPad mini, a Dewalt cordless drill, one pill containing marijuana and a clear baggie of marijuana, according to the search warrant.
The search warrant did not mention the whereabouts of the Lalaloopsy dolls.
