Two men have been arrested for felony burglary-related offenses stemming from what Rocky Mount police say was a recent rash of commercial break-ins involving cigarette thefts.

Michael Angelo Jones, 58, and William Donnell Spellman, 33, both of the 500 block of Shearin Street, were charged on Feb. 22, police Sgt. Brad Summerlin said. Jones and Spellman are accused of committing breaking and entering and committing larceny after breaking and entering.

Jones was jailed under a $200,000 secured bond in the Nash County Detention Center, while Spellman was jailed under a $40,000 secured bond in the Edgecombe County Detention Center, Summerlin said.

The cases stem from half a dozen stores being hit in a four-day period, with the pattern being to wait until they were closed, Summerlin said.

The stores include the Express Food Mart in the 600 block of Jeffreys Road, the EP Mart in the 2400 block of North Church Street, the Citgo in the 1000 block of North Church Street, the Piggly Wiggly in the 400 block of West Thomas Street and the Fuel Doc in the 14400 block of Alternate U.S. 64.

Summerlin also said the cases included a Nash County case of Smith's Red and White being hit back-to-back nights.

Anyone with additional information about these cases or any crimes in the area is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov
