MURFREESBORO – May break-ins bring June jail times.

Two men who allegedly broke into Murfreesboro Farms May 29 found themselves behind bars Thursday.

According to Hertford County Sheriff Juan Vaughan, two men broke into the Murfreesboro Farms office on U.S. 158 and stole a number of small items. Those objects included boxes of snacks, coins and a small gas can.

Unfortunately for the two suspects, video surveillance captured their activities and led to their arrest.

Hertford County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Will Liverman headed up the investigation that led to the arrest of Darin Omar Deloatch, 21, of Mapleton Road in Murfreesboro and Japree Lortez Brooks, 26, of Spring Branch Road in Murfreesboro.

Each man faces charges including one count of breaking and entering and one count of larceny after breaking and entering.

Deloatch was placed in the Hertford County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond and Brooks was locked up in the same facility under a $20,000 secured bond.

“I appreciate the work Lt. Liverman and other officers did in handling this case,” Sheriff Vaughan said. “We take all break-ins seriously and we’ll continue to move quickly to arrest the responsible parties.”
