WAKE FOREST — Police have arrested three local men believed to be responsible for a rash of residential break-ins in northern Wake Forest.
Marvin Wyche, 17, 1634-B Burgundy Dr., Raleigh, has been charged with five counts of residential breaking and entering, five counts of larceny after breaking and entering and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
Stephon Jones, 19, 512 N. Allen Road, Wake Forest, has been charged with four counts of residential breaking and entering, four counts of larceny after breaking and entering, and one count of injury to personal property.
Glenn Moody, 20, 409 E. Spring St., Wake Forest, has been charged with two counts of possession of stolen property and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
The three men allegedly broke into several residences while no one was home and stole electronics, jewelry and money. According to police, some of the stolen property has been recovered.
Police officials say their investigation was aided by citizens who called to provide tips and report suspicious activity.
“We rely on our citizens to be the eyes and ears of the department and encourage them to call us anytime they see something suspicious,” said Police Chief Jeff Leonard.
“We’d rather our citizens call and be wrong than not call and miss the chance to prevent a crime.”
Wyche, Jones and Moody, 20, are being held at the Wake County Jail. Bond for Wyche and Jones is set at $50,000, while bond for Moody is $15,000.
The investigation continues and further charges are pending, so no additional information is available at this time.
