Teens arrested in break-in




Two teenagers have been arrested on felony charges in connection with a break-in to a vehicle in Newton Grove last month.

Nicholas Johnson, 17, and Roderick Jarron Smith, 19, both of 3064 Preacher Henry Road, Faison, have been charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle, larceny from a motor vehicle and possession of stolen goods.

Bond was set at $10,000 secured for both teenagers.

Sheriff’s Lt. Marcus Smith said the teens were arrested as part of an investigation into a breaking and entering of a motor vehicle that occurred on April 28 at 125 Auto Way Drive, Newton Grove. In that incident, approximately $1,500 worth of electronics were stolen from the vehicle.

In a separate arrest involving another Faison-area man, a 27-year-old suspect was taken into custody on break-in and fraud charges out of Cumberland County.

James Nathaniel Davis, 27, of 246 Grimes Road, Faison, was charged with breaking and entering, larceny and possessing/concealing stolen property and 11 counts of fraud- obtaining money/property by false pretenses, all out of Cumberland.

His bond was set at $30,000

According to Smith, deputies were serving an order to show cause for child support on Davis and discovered he was wanted on charges in Cumberland.

“As a result, he was served with the outstanding charges from Cumberland County as well,” Smith said.
