Vehicle Stop Leads to Two Arrests
A vehicle stop by a Sheriff’s Office investigator Friday resulted in the arrest of two men and the recovery of property that had been stolen earlier that day.
When the vehicle was pulled over on East Indiana Ave., the passenger jumped out and fled into a wooded area, according to a press release. The driver of the vehicle, Ramar Marice Belton, of Raeford, was detained when two laptop computers and two color televisions were found in the vehicle. During the investigation, the computers and televisions were determined to belong to a Southern Pines couple. When deputies responded to the residence in Southern Pines they found the back glass door to the residence had been broken, according to the press release. The recovered property was returned to the owners.
Belton was charged with one count of felony breaking and entering, one count of felony larceny after break and enter, one count of felony possession of stolen goods, one count of misdemeanor driving while license revoked, one count of misdemeanor displaying a fictitious registration plate and one count of operating a vehicle with no insurance, according to the release.
He was jailed, with bail set at $75,000.
