Fifteen months after a Cary man was charged with helping steal 41 Michael Kors watches from Bailey’s Fine Jewelers in Cameron Village, he turned himself in to police on Tuesday.
Joshua Daniel Alcorn, 22, of Camden Branch Drive was charged in September 2015 with two counts of felony larceny. Police accuse him of taking 22 Michael Kors watches worth about $5,800 on Feb. 1, 2015, and then taking 19 Michael Kors watches worth about $4,900 on Aug. 24, 2015. It’s not clear how the watches were stolen.
Alcorn was also charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense by pawning two watches at each of two different shops in the city and getting cash for them. Police said he got $70 at one shop and $110 at the other.
About the time they charged Alcorn, police arrested William Clifton-Carroll Bullock, 35, of Raleigh and charged him with the same thefts. Bullock was convicted in October 2015.

He was released from prison on July 30 last year and died the same day in Asheville.
His obituary in the News & Observer said Bullock “became a victim of the heroin epidemic that has swept our nation.”
When Alcorn surrendered at the Wake County Detention Center on Tuesday, authorities also served arrest warrants from July 2015 that accused him of stealing a backpack leaf blower earlier that month and pawning it the same day for $125.
