Maryland men charged in N’hampton crime

HENRICO — Two men from Maryland are facing felony charges in connection to two break-ins here.

According to Chief Detective Captain D.M. Harmon, on Tuesday afternoon the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office arrested Sean Meeks, 19 of 9 Water Street in Northeast Elkton, MD and Corey Feazelle, 21 of 139 Carter Road in Elkton MD.

Meeks and Feazelle were charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny, felony possession of stolen goods, B&E of a motor vehicle, misdemeanor larceny and possession of stolen goods.

Harmon said the charges stem from two B&E crimes that occurred on Monday and Tuesday.

On Monday, a B&E at a residence on Roanoke Trail in Henrico was reported to the NCSO. Several items were taken from the home.

The next day, a B&E of a vehicle on Sandcove Drive was reported in which several items were taken from there as well.

“Hours after the residential break-in, the victim was at a nearby restaurant when they spotted some of their stolen property on the two defendants who were also eating at the same restaurant,” said Harmon. “The victim was able to get a tag number of the vehicle they (the suspects) were in and that’s what led us to these two subjects.”

Capt. Harmon said Deputy Josh Langley and Lt. Corey Jackson were the responding officers to the break-ins and they assisted him in clearing both cases and making the arrests.

Harmon said Meeks and Feazelle were staying with a friend in Henrico when the crimes were allegedly committed. Several of the stolen items were recovered by officers when the men were arrested at that residence.

Meeks and Feazelle are detained in the Northampton County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond each. Their first appearance in court was Thursday and their cases were continued until January 5, 2009.
