MURPHY, CHEROKEE COUNTY, NC (WRCB) – A North Carolina man who police dubbed "the Moped Bandit" has been arrested on charges of breaking and entering.

Samuel Henry Childers, 36, of Murphy, North Carolina, was arrested last week in connection with a home robbery on Wrens Nest Lane in the Peachtree Community.

According to deputies, Childers used a moped to get to and from the crime scene.

Investigators were able to track items stolen from the home to a local precious metals dealership. From there, investigators were able to identify Childers.

Childers is currently being held in the Cherokee County Detention Facility. He is scheduled to appear in court in July.
