(Walhalla, SC)———————————The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Westminster man late Thursday night on outstanding warrants that charge him with Receiving Stolen Goods and Accessory After the Fact of a Felony. The man also had an outstanding Magistrate’s Bench Warrant.
41 year old Calvin Clark Webb was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center just before midnight.
Webb is the fifth person charged in a case that began with a burglary and larceny on Moore Hill Road on July 3rd and then involved the receiving of goods stolen in the burglary and the selling of some of those items.
On Tuesday of this week, 42 year old April Dawn Nix of 816 Cobb Bridge Road and 43 year old Jimmy Dwayne Webb of 810 Cobb Bridge Road were booked into the Oconee County Detention Center after being arrested by the warrants division of the Sheriff’s Office on outstanding warrants charging both of them with also Receiving Stolen Goods and Accessory After the Fact of a Felony.
According to investigators, a burglary occurred during the early morning hours of July 3rd at the Moore Hill Road address off Long Creek Highway. Investigators report that firearms, a 2004 GMC pickup, an antique with family heirlooms inside, money, credit cards, social security cards, birth certificates and other items were taken. Investigators believe that the amount of items taken from the burglary was around $10,000. Shortly after the burglary, 44 year old Bobby Ray Carroll of 641 Cobb Trail Road in Westminster and 43 year old Sherry Anita Honea Gibson of 612 Westminster Highway in Westminster, both of whom investigators say committed the Moore Hill Road burglary, went to the Cobb Bridge Road address and gave at that time certain items to both Webb subjects and Nix. In turn, both Webb subjects and Nix started making phone calls to sell the items.
At this point, the items were sold and some of the items taken were recovered, including one firearm that was found on July 16th and the antique chest, which was recovered on July 11th and was found empty by investigators. The 2004 GMC pickup was recovered in Transylvania County, North Carolina on July 4th.
According to investigators, Nix and both Webb subjects received into their possession two handguns and the antique chest. The value of the items they sold was around $775.00, according to warrants. Nix and both Webb subjects aided Carroll and Honea Gibson to get rid of the stolen items, which led to the accessory charges.
Carroll and Honea Gibson were each charged with Grand Larceny and First Degree Burglary in the case. Carroll is currently being held in Transylvania County, North Carolina on unrelated charges. Honea Gibson was served the warrants at the Oconee County Detention Center while being held on unrelated charges.
Calvin Clark is being held at the Oconee County Detention Center on a combined $7,000 surety bond after a bond hearing this morning. Honea Gibson, Jimmy Webb and Nix are also still being held at the Detention Center.
