Two Men Arrested in String of Residential Break-Ins
Two men were arrested for a string of break-ins in the Robbins area that involved taking jewelry, electronics and cash.
Moore County Sheriff's investigators arrested Michael Angelo Renzi, 19, of 363 Davis Road, Seagrove, Monday in relationship to the crimes. Previously, investigators had arrested Joshua Lee Welch, 20, 3460 Hilton Trail, Asheboro, on May 24, according to a press release.
The arrests stemmed from three reports the Sheriff's Office received of homes in the Robbins area being broken into on May 7, May 14 and May 19 where jewelry, electronics and cash had been taken, according to the release.
On May 23, sheriff's investigators developed leads that led to a search of a residence on Hilton Trail near Asheboro, according to the release, and with the help of the Randolph County Sheriff's Office, investigators searched the residence and located stolen property from break-ins in Moore and Montgomery counties.
Investigators also recovered stolen jewelry from several businesses that purchase gold and silver in Guilford, Randolph and Montgomery counties that had been taken from the residences in the Robbins area, according to the release.
Both Welch and Renzi were charged with three counts of felony breaking and entering, three counts of felony larceny, and three counts of possession of stolen property, according to the release. Welch was also charged with breaking and entering and larceny in Montgomery County and possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana in Randolph County, according to the release, and Renzi was also charged with breaking and entering and larceny in Montgomery County.
Welch was jailed, with bail set at $30,000. Renzi was released to the custody of his parents.
