He was placed in the county jail under a secured bond of $32,000. His first court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.

The other two suspects had previously been arrested.

Parker Godwin Britt of Conway was charged with two counts each of breaking and entering, felony possession of stolen goods, and felony larceny. He was placed in the Northampton County Detention Center with a $ 38,500 secured bond and made his first court appearance on Nov. 12.
