Cooper, Daye charged again

WINDSOR – Two local men charged last week in a rash of residential break-ins in Hertford County now face similar charges in Bertie County.

Kyle Jamal Cooper, age 23 of Askew Lane, Aulander, and 20-year-old Deijion Daye of Boyette Street in Murfreesboro, were issued Bertie County arrest warrants while incarcerated in the Hertford County Detention Center.

The Bertie warrants were for two counts each of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and larceny of a firearm.

Cooper was additionally charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and felony flee to elude arrest with a motor vehicle.

The Bertie charges, which were associated with two residential break-ins on Wednesday of last week, increased Cooper’s total bond to $670,000 between the two counties. Daye’s bond was upped to $600,000.

In Hertford County, the two men were linked to five break-ins. That crime wave, which began on May 20, involved residences on Caroline Street, Aulander; Cotton Island Road, Harrellsville; Jackie Brinkley Road, Aulander; Bazemore Road, Cofield; and Quebec Road, Harrellsville.

They were arrested on June 2 during a traffic stop on Mooretown Road near Powellsville.

According to Hertford County Sheriff Dexter Hayes, Cooper was charged with five counts of breaking and entering, five counts of larceny, five counts of possession of stolen goods, 10 counts of stolen firearms, and six counts of possession of firearm by a felon.

Hayes said that Daye stands charged with four counts of breaking and entering, four counts of larceny, five counts of possession of stolen goods, and 10 counts of possession of stolen firearms.
