The Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three teenagers in connection with numerous break-ins and larcenies in the past few months and is looking for a fourth suspect.
According to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office, over the past several months, there have been numerous break-ins and larcenies in the Country Estates and Holiday Estates subdivisions between Rocky Mount and Battleboro.
“Last week, with the help of the Hispanic community in the area, Detective Spruill was able to get evidence in several of the cases,” Lt. E. Wilson Muse said in the release.
Following up on information received, detectives searched 1005 Wave Lane in Rocky Mount and 660 Jennifer Lane in Rocky Mount. At both locations, detectives found items that were stolen during break-ins in the neighborhood, the release said.
