Suspect In 2018 Attempted Business Robbery, Shooting Held Under $1 Million Bond

An arrest has been made in the October 2018 attempted robbery of a Cleveland used car lot during which an employee was shot.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office has arrested 22 year-old Scott Bridges of Wayne Street, Raleigh in connection with the incident last year at E-Zee Auto at 12450 Cleveland Road, Garner.

During the botched hold up an employee, 30 year-old Isai Ntrenganya of Knightdale, was shot. Ntrenganya ran across the street to the parking lot of a dentist office where he summoned help.  The suspects fled the scene in a car.

At the time of the shooting, authorities said there were three suspects who were involved.

Bridges is the first suspect to be apprehended. He was charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, conspiracy to commit assault, and conspiracy to commit robbery.   Bridges was confined in the Johnston County Jail on Tuesday under a $1 million bond.
