A limited production car stolen during a break-in has been recovered but not before it was damaged by the suspects. In the early morning hours of December 12th, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office says at least three suspects broke into a storage building near Princeton and stole a 1986 Buick Grand National from the owner’s car collection.
The stolen car was taken for a joyride and damaged when it was discarded in a wooded area later that day.
Following an investigation, detectives were able to file charges against two juveniles and one adult suspect, 19 year-old Jakob Marc Sutton of Bizzell Grove Church Road, Selma. Sutton was arrested Dec. 29th and charged with breaking and entering, larceny of a motor vehicle and felony conspiracy. He was held on a $90,000 secured bond.
The stolen Grand National was returned to its owner.
