Four suspects ranging in age from 19 to 23 have been linked by sheriff’s detectives to break-ins in the Rosewood Community in western Wayne County days before Thanksgiving.
The suspects are accused of breaking into one home around midnight last November stealing a laptop computer and flat screen TV’s. The homeowner happened to be out of town when the burglary occurred. Around 1:30am that same morning, the suspects kicked open the back door at a second home but fled when the occupants began yelling.
About two hours later, deputies located all four suspects in a car while responding to a third incident in the same neighborhood. Deputies found items in the vehicle that had been taken during the first break-in but at the time the crime had not been reported and officers didn’t know the electronics were stolen.
Kenneth Ray Robinson Jr., 23, of Goldsboro and Telek Carter, 19, of Goldsboro are in the Wayne County Jail facing numerous charges.
Warrants have been obtained for the other two suspects, Rico Benton, 20, and DeVandre Kontrell Kornegay, 22, both of Goldsboro. They are wanted on attempted first-degree burglary and second-degree burglary charges.
