3 Arrested After U-Haul Van Fails To Stop At Seymour Johnson AFB Gate

Three people are facing a variety of charges after an incident at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (SJAFB) in Goldsboro.  Around 4:45pm Friday, a U-Haul van attempted to flee onto the military base past the Gate Entry team. The vehicle was stopped by SJAFB security. Goldsboro Police also responded to assist. The occupants in the U-Haul refused to identify themselves.

One person, Bennie Harold Taylor Jr. 19, of Pikeville eventually identified himself to authorities. A search of the vehicle yielded marijuana, methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia. Paperwork in the vehicle helped identify the other two suspects, Camille Renee Allen, 20, of Plattsburgh, NY and Roman Kinter, 20, a homeless man from the Goldsboro area.

Authorities said the U-Haul had been rented by Allen on May 25th and was due back May 26th but had not been returned according to the terms of the rental agreement.  Officers also found a large pit bull dog in the rear of the rental van. The dog was turned over to the Wayne County Animal Shelter.

All three suspects were charged with trespassing, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. All three received a secure bond of $35,500 each. The Goldsboro/Wayne County Drug Task Force and NC SBI assisted.
