S.P. Police Arrest Suspect in 'Smash and Grabs' at Reservoir Park
Police arrested a suspect Wednesday in a series of vehicle break-ins that plagued Southern Pines Reservoir Park.
Thomas Anthony Wright, 27, of Carthage, faces five counts of breaking and entering a motor vehicle and five counts of larceny, according to a press release.
The arrest stems from an investigation by Southern Pines police into multiple “smash and grabs” in the parking lot of the park located on Central Drive in Southern Pines. Vehicles in the parking lot would be entered by breaking windows, followed by grabbing items inside the vehicles. The incidences that Wright has been charged with occurred between March 19 and April 26, according to the release.
According to the release, Wright was identified as a potential suspect, and was arrested Wednesday on a charge of driving while license revoked. Further investigation led to the filing of the additional charges.
Wright was jailed, with bail set at $35,000.
