Taser Used On Burglary Suspect

Johnston County deputies reportedly caught two people breaking into a new home under construction.  One suspect fled on foot and was tased.

Around 10:15pm Friday, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a suspicious truck parked at a home being built on Old Hickory Drive off Angie Road near the Johnston-Wake County line.  Officers arrived and reportedly observed one suspect, William Glenn Weaver, 43, of Vintners Court, Raleigh walking from the house to his truck carrying boxes.

As deputies approached, Weaver saw the officers and tried to flee on foot.  Officers chased Weaver and ordered repeatedly for him to stop or he would be tased. He failed to comply and was tased.  He continued to resist arrested but was eventually handcuffed.

Officers determined Weaver and a second suspect, Sarah Aman Price, 38, of Martin Luther King Blvd., Chapel Hill, had reportedly removed ceramic tile and roof paper from the construction site.  The stolen items were valued at $118. They were returned to the builder, Capital City Homes of Raleigh.

Weaver was charged with breaking and entering, conspiracy and resisting a public officer. He was confined in the Johnston County Jail on a $150,000 secured bond.

Price was charged with breaking and entering and conspiracy. She was also wanted on five failure to appear warrants including larceny, possession of heroin and obtaining property by false pretenses.  She was held on a $75,000 bond on the B&E and conspiracy charges. Price received an additional $52,500 bond on the failure to appear warrants.
