Man arrested 4 days after making bond, deputies say | News
STATESVILLE, NC (WBTV)- A Statesville man was arrested for a break-in four days after making bond for separate break-in cases, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.
Reginald Lamores Brown 34, was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of breaking and entering, one count of larceny after breaking and entering, and one count of being a habitual felon.
The incident happened Monday when the Sheriff's Office received a call on Dyson Road of a breaking and entering in progress. Deputies were told that the victim heard the door of her home being opened, and then saw a man inside, deputies said.
The victim screamed at the man, who then ran from the home. Deputies also received information that the man may have left the scene in a black passenger vehicle, the report states.
Deputies who responded to the scene were aware of the earlier involvements with Brown, and the previous breaking and entering cases. They immediately began to be on the lookout for him. Detectives gathered other evidence and followed up with the victim, who was able to positively identify Brown as the individual who entered her home, officials said.
Detectives obtained more warrants on Brown, and on Tuesday he was located by detectives and arrested. Brown confessed to breaking into the Dyson Rd. home, as well as other breaking and entering cases.
Brown had made bond for breaking and entering just four days prior to the arrest, WBTV has learned.
Iredell Detectives are working with the Alexander County Sheriff's Office in the cases, and say charges are expected to be made for Alexander County home break-ins as well.
