Couple accused of teaming to steal

By Kevin McKinnon, 08/3/12 7:23 AM

Sharlotte Manyell Carrigan and Benjamin Jaye Newton

A Hope man and woman have been accused of acting as a team to distract people in their homes while stealing from them.

Sharlotte Manyell Carrigan, 27, and Benjamin Jaye Newton, 19, were arrested Wednesday, August 1 and charged with Residential Burglary and Theft of Property.

Hempstead County Deputy Josh Powell had investigated a reported burglary at 4423 Hempstead 21 where the couple had allegedly come to the residence to ask about Mary Kay products sold there. Powell was told by the resident that the couple came to the door where the woman introduced herself as Charlotte Muldrow. She said the pair followed her, barging into a bedroom where she keeps her product stored.

The victim says they returned to her living room where “Muldrow” kept her attention as the man went back and forth from the living room to the bedroom. When the victim became suspicious of the couple’s action they left her home saying they needed to go to the bank to get enough money to purchase some product from her only having $10 in cash on them.

When they left the victim noticed that items had been stolen from her purse and called the sheriff’s office to report it. She said the couple had headed toward Highway 278 South in a orange/red 2002 Cadillac. She described them as a black female and a tall, slender, black male.

Investigator Gary Dorman located the vehicle at a residence on Highway 29 South. Dorman recovered cash from the vechicle believed taken from the victim on Hempstead 21.

Carrigan and Newton were taken to the Hempstead County Detention Center to await a first court appearance.

Sheriff James Singleton warns that the method of operation where one person keeps a homeowner occupied while the other moves about the home or business looking for valuables is becoming a problem in Hempstead County. He says deputies believe Carrigan and Newton were in the process of pulling off another theft of this type when they were arrested.

“I would like to caution citizens who run a business from their home to be careful who and how many people at a time you let into your home,” says Sheriff Singleton

“Business owners, be mindful if one person or a group of people comes into your place of business and tries to keep you distracted while others mingle about.”

The sheriff asks that suspicious activity be reported to local law enforcement.

  1. why can't they come to my house. I could save the tax payers a little money. Mary Kay is dead, and they will be joing her.

  2. Staci Risher says:

    The girl stole my iphone several weeks ago from my store! Beware!

  3. Christy Diane Black says:

    She and a boy dressed as a girl came into our office and attempted to do the same thing a while back! Then they were in the news for the same kind of criminal activity! This needs to be stopped–thanks to the HCSO, maybe they can't pull this crap again! If she/he or whoever would invest all of that time trying to come up with a way to steal from someone–and use it to find a J- O-B, they would be alot better off. Try coming to our house–BET it ends there :)

  4. She and another female came into my mother's store several weeks ago and tried to distract her, the other woman standing by the cash register while "muldrow" attempted to get my mother to move to another part of the store. Luckily someone else was in the store and the pair left.

  5. Cheryl May says:

    I never liked it much that your mom was there alone!

    Florence N Normandy THOU SHALT NOT STEAL!!!!!!! Have you read the Ten Commandments? The reason does not matter. Do you know them or their situation? They might make more money than any of us and steal just because. They do not just steal money. They stole from the store I work in. I work hard for my money and the things I choose to purchase with my money. If they choose to steal from me or my family, or anyone else, then they deserve to go to jail. There is no justification for stealing.

  20. Josie Carlton says:

    Florence…u need to learn how to spell!

  21. Angela Cantu says:

    First of all..Florence N Normandy.. You are just plum ignorant in what you are saying! You must steal yourself to think it's okay to do so! People work hard for what they have even though the economy has went down hill. Charlotte may have been struggling but that gives her no right to steal what she wants or thinks she needs from somebody else. If she can't work for it and find other ways to get money for it, then she don't need it or deserve to have it! I went to school with this girl and she's always had a I don't give a fukk attitude. She's broken into houses and stolen all kinds of things these last few years. It's time she get locked up and the key be thrown away. There no reason for people like her to be out running around in the world.. I say good ridince!

  22. Mistee Bree Hurd says:

    Hell yeah Mr. Mays.

  23. English and correct grammar goes a long way to employment. Just saying. There are folks out there stealing that you wouldn't expect.

  24. Angela L. Brown says:

    All I can say is Lord have mercy on the couple and Florence. We should never uphold people in doing wrong, I can't care what the circumstance is. I struggled as a single parent for a while but I worked and went to school. I had to have some assistance but I didn't rob people. Wrong and wrong and people of sick and tired of others taking what they worked hard for. We wonder why small businesses close down, prices go up, and people are packing guns. I tell you one thing, most homeowners are taking action against people who steal. They have been saved from getting killed. As parents you should want to be a better role model for your children. There is nothing wrong with going to work and having your own. Florence, I feel sorry for you and mentality because it is not ok steal and these business people commenting are tired. If she is your friend, you have a right to tell her it's wrong unless you are doing it too. I will pray for you as well and I agree with Florence the economy is messed up but stealing is not the answer. Get out and advocate for better jobs and training programs instead of you saying, "people will steal".

  25. Angela L. Brown says:

    I AM WONDERING IF THE POLICE KNOWS ABOUT THESE OTHER INCIDENTS. THE COMMENTS COULD BE A WAY OF MORE CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST HER.

  26. I guess no sin is greater den da next have yal ever thought dey need help…..

  34. Really? All white people are meth heads? People who own businesses in this town worked their tails off for what they have. Also, because you own a company does not mean you have money. Hard work is the key word here. The fact of the matter is…stealing is wrong. There should be no excuse or toleration for it. Sounds to me like you make excuses for it. Anyone who steals will finally get caught. It's called karma.

  35. XACTLY IM NT MKN XCUSES BT YALL ACT LYKE DIS DA ONLY PERSON DAT STEAL N IT TOOK ALL DESE COMMENTS 4 U 2 C WAT I WUZ TRYN 2 SAY!!!

  37. Angela Cantu says:

    Yeah Florence N Normandy.. Sound like you know her and consider her a "friend" since you are so defensive about it all.. Either that or you yourself like I have said previously steal from people so you think it's all okay. There may be more people out there that steal and I'm sure everybody is aware that she isn't the only person that steals but that don't make it right. For someone who says they have such a good education you sure do sound very very ignorant in your comments! And why do I not work? Simply because I have a damn good husband who works and makes plenty money to take care of me and our kids just fine without me having to work. As if that was any of your business though :)

  38.

  44. Angela L. Brown says:

    Angela Cantu, thanks for letting me know that. I am from Hope, Arkansas and I read the news from there everyday. It breaks my heart to know that so much is going in Hope. I pray everyday because I have a son, parents, and granddaughter left there. I could see things changing in Hope a long time ago and I wanted to get my girls away from there because in Hope you find yourself getting stuck but that still doesn't give anyone the right to steal. Society says its wrong and God says it wrong. I just wonder how thieves feel when and if people steal from them, they would be ready to kill someone. If they lived in another country, they would get fingers and hands chopped off. But people in America are starting to fight back. I know its hard, I been there but hard work, dedication, faith, and prayer got me where I am today. I was raised to know stealing would get you locked up or killed. My grandfather and grandmother always said, "nothing aint for free" and you don't work, you don't eat. "don't take what is not yours" and "hard work goes a long way" Florence if this young lady is your sister, I will continue to pray for you and her and you need to encourage her there is a better way of life and if she has children, pray for them because other children make fun of them when parents are locked away. Secondly I know they are missing there mother. There is nothing like a mother's love. Children look to mothers for love, protection, security, and care and she can't do that locked up. Florence, if by the grace of God she doesn't go to prison for a while, encourage her to get counseling and look to the Lord for help. Because it is apparent she needs some help and I know she is hurting. It is not too late for help to reach out to God, He is waiting near her heart for her to open it up and let Him in. God bless you all.

  45. Angela L. Brown says:

    Florence N Normandy , Not nice to name call, you don't know that lady like that. She never called you out of your name and stop being on the defense. Wrong is wrong and the bottom line is we can't judge but one day all will have to face Jesus and He is the final judge in all our actions.

  46. U RITE MS.BROWN SHE NEEDS HELP SHE DOESNT DENY DAT BT I C IT AS ALOTTA PPL DO U DNT THANK PPL ENCOURAGE HER..

  48. Angela L. Brown says:

    That's what I said, we can't judge. I am praying for her because I knew your people well. She was a wonderful lady. I went to school with your brother Freddie and she was a godly woman. If I was close to your sister, I would encourage her and talk to her and help her out. She needs a good mentor that will be there for her. I am going to keep in touch with you so you can let me know her address and how to write her. She just need to keep surrounding herself around positive people and her light will begin to shine. She may have to move to start over. God will help her, I know He is a way maker. You stayed blessed Florence and keep encouraging her and remember everything Ms.Jean taught ya'll.

  49. Florence you need to stay in Hope with that small town mentality you have. I'm ole school oak cliff trained and will put you on the cooling board.

  50. Angela Cantu says:

    Excuse me? Did you just say you DO know me?! Ugh, if you know me then how do I not know you?! lol.. Because you don't know me!! I have never done drugs in my life and yeah, i've heard of robbery.. But you ever hear of a gun under your pillow?? I would not hesitate to use it!!

  51. Angela Cantu says:

    Read below Florence… I've heard of robbery yeah but if i'm home and it happens.. I keep my gun close and i'm not afraid to use it either JS!!

  52. Angela L. Brown says:

    That girl got some problems herself. Ignore her, I am going to pray for her because she is talking in circles.

  53. Angela Cantu says:

    Sounds like she could use a lot of prayers!!

  54. Man I regret all my wrongdoins everyday! All I can say is Hope needs some Hope for needy people! It's not easy at all to work for yours around here! I will advise if you need a job and can't find one around here: GET THE HELL OUT OF HOPE WHILE YOU HAVE A CHANCE!

  55. OKAY! NOW U GET MY DRIFT!

  56. People are stealing to make it even though it's against the law! When it comes down to you ain't got nobody and have to feed your kids especially, what would any of you do! And, shelter is not always available!

  57. Angela L. Brown says:

    This is my last time posting but God leads my words and I always use my life as an example. When I was down and out without a job with three children sometimes my lights would get cut off, gas cut off, no food, diapers, or formula. I had parents but sometimes I was too embarrassed. Honey I would turn to God and He answered my prayers but the key to that is obeying God and He will bless you and you must have faith and patience. I surrounded myself with positive people, left my ex-husband and moved from Hope. It was so hard at first to start over but I did it. I got into a good church surrounded by people who encouraged me, I got a job, house, car, and went back to school. I got an even better job and God blessed me with a good man, a new car, and a better house. I was patient, faithful, and trusted in God. So don't tell me you have to resort to stealing because you don't. It's all of you and how you want to handle your situation. I know everyone's situation is not the same but it is no where in the Bible that says if you are hungry, or if your kids are hungry, or you don't have a job, or if you are homeless, or lights off, etc; its ok to steal. God does not make an exception to His word. You either do wrong or right. I am sorry for her situation, but trust me when I say God will make a way, you just have to trust Him and give all your heart to Him. Don't conform to what the world says or does, follow the Bible and God's Word and He will come through every time. God is love and I love Him with all my heart. He doesn't want to see His children hurting, but we have to acknowledge Him, confess our sins, accept Him as our Savior, and believe His an all powerful God. Be blessed everyone. I hope I have said something that has touched your heart. I love you and God loves you too.

  58. She came to my grandmothers used furniture store recently and made her get up on a latter to get down a picture (keep in mind that my grandmother is in her eightys) and then took her wallet and all her cash. I am reading all these posts about her continued stealing and I am wondering why she is not already in prison. Scary!

    I LOVE THIS POST, ANGELA…IT HIT HOME…THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATIONAL WORDS.. IF U DIDNT TOUCH ANYONE ELSE'S HEART, YOU TOUCHED MINE! GOD BLESS U AND TY ONCE AGAIN…
