Suspect tied to string of car break-ins



Staff Writer


A Denver man was placed behind county bars earlier this month after deputies said that since late February, he broke into at least six vehicles located along a stretch of roadway east of N.C. 150.

Eric Jones, 18, of 6610 Kidville Road in Denver, was charged Tuesday with five counts each of misdemeanor larceny, possessing stolen goods and breaking and entering motor vehicles.

He was originally booked in the county jail under a $7,500 secured bond on March 2.

Jones is accused of breaking into vehicles along the 2000 and 2100 blocks of Beth Haven Church Road in the county’s eastern end sometime between Feb. 29 and early March, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

No forcibly entry was reported in any of the incidents, deputies said.

A majority of the items stolen, including CD players, speakers, pocket knives and headsets, have been recovered.

Jones, who could face more charges in the future, remains in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $35,000 secured bond, authorities said. He’s expected to appear in court on Tuesday.

An investigation into the incidents is ongoing.
