Four charged in B&E

HARRELLSVILLE – Four individuals, including a juvenile in possession of a stolen and loaded handgun, stand charged in a residential breaking-and-entering case here April 24.

According to Hertford County Sheriff Dexter Hayes, quick action by his officers and personnel with the Ahoskie Police Department led to the arrest of 24-year-old Tervon Stanley of Ahoskie along with Anthony Sutton and Jeffrey Nash, both 16 years of age and both of Cofield.

All three were charged with breaking-and-entering, conspiracy, and possession of stolen goods. All charges are felonies.

Their bonds were set at $25,000 secured.

Sheriff Hayes said a 15-year-old female was placed in secured juvenile custody.

Hayes said the call concerning a residential breaking-and-entering was received at 1:50 p.m. on April 24. Weapons, jewelry and other items were reported stolen.

“When we received the call, we were told that the crime had just occurred and the suspect vehicle, a silver or gray in color Toyota Camry, was possibly headed back towards Ahoskie,” Hayes stated. “Our deputies converged on that area and the Ahoskie Police were notified of the suspect vehicle possibly headed in that direction.”

Hayes said Ahoskie Police Detective Justin Farmer and other APD officers performed a traffic stop of a car matching the description of the suspect vehicle on Stokes Street. Upon searching that vehicle, a 12-guage shotgun and other items matching the description of what was stolen from the Harrellsville residence were discovered.

Hayes said he along with HCSO Captains Marty Davis and Jesse Fennell arrived on the scene of the traffic stop at which time the four individuals inside the vehicle were detained and taken to the Ahoskie Police Department for processing.

“Once at the Ahoskie Police station, the juvenile was searched by a female officer at which time a loaded .38 caliber handgun stolen from the residence was found in the girl’s pants,” Hayes stated.

The Sheriff said that all of the stolen property has been returned to the owner. He also thanked the Ahoskie Police for their assistance in making these arrests.
