A playhouse valued at $8,000, 50 Lalaloopsy dolls and a Glock pistol figure in a family dispute that wound up with police accusing two family members of going into another member's house and stealing those and other items.
Shortly after midnight Monday, police went to the Palafox Court home of Idward Ragheb Abboud, 61, and Sozan Idward Abboud, 38, with a search warrant.
About 90 minutes later, officers arrested each of them on two counts of felony larceny one court of felony breaking or entering a St. James Church Road house where Jessica Abboud lives.
Arrest paperwork alleged that they had carried away “a safe containing a black Glock 23” semiautomatic pistol and a “white playhouse with pink shutters ... having a value of $8,000.”
When the search warrant was returned to the Wake County court clerk’s office and made public, Detective. K.A. Horan said the items reported stolen also included the Lalaloopsy dolls and an iPad mini that were in the playhouse, keys to the safe, and keys to the playhouse.
The search warrant said officers found the playhouse, the safe and several other items, but there was no mention of the dolls or the gun and a holster and a pistol magazine for it that Pamela Abboud told police had been in the safe.
The returned warrant also made no mention of cash and personal papers that Horan’s application said she told him had been in the safe.
When asking for the search warrant for the Palafox Court house that property records say Sozan Abboud owns, Horan said Pamela Abboud had come home about 6:45 p.m. Monday and found the playhouse gone and her daughter’s dresser disturbed.
In that application, Horan told a magistrate that another brother of Sozan Abboud had driven past the Palafox Court house about 7 p.m. Monday and saw the playhouse in the yard there.
The detective also wrote that a witness on St. James Church Road reported seeing a flatbed truck at Pamela Abboud’s house earlier in the day and the playhouse being loaded onto it.
The three Abbouds are related, but how was not certain Wednesday, police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said. Pamela Abboud and Sozan Abboud appeared to be sisters-in-law, and Idward Abboud was believed to be the father of Sozan Abboud and Pamela Abboud’s husband, but that could not be confirmed from available police information.
Idward and Sozan Abboud each had court appearances on Tuesday and were freed on bail. Horan issued Idward Abboud an appearance ticket for a small quantity of marijuana that the search warrant said was found in the house.
