“The breaking and entering started around the second week of February and went to mid-March ,” said Capt. T.W. Sands. “The detectives were able to obtain warrants for four suspects after a patrol deputy got some information on the breaking and entering. The deputy passed the information on to the detectives and they were able to put the pieces of the puzzle together.”
Sands said the arrests allowed the Sheriff’s Office to clear two cases of breaking and entering that occurred in Lawsonville and one in Germanton.
“The items stolen were TV’s, Xbox’s laptop computers and antique jars,” said Sands. “All the property in the breaking and entering has a value of $3,000. The detectives have recovered some of this property.”
All four suspects will be in court on April 20.
“I want the people of Stokes County to know that we work as a team and will continue to fight for our victims of this great county,” said Sheriff Mike Marshall.
