A Lincoln County man helped deputies apprehend two out-of-county residents accused of breaking into his neighbor’s home on the city’s northeastern end Tuesday.
Deputies said they arrested Larry Jabar Hall, 29, of 208 Lincoln Street in Belmont, and Alan Craig Parker, 29, of 510 N. Piedmont Avenue, Apt. 4 in Kings Mountain for breaking into a home on the 5000 block of East Highway 150 in Lincolnton.
A resident of the area called 911 around 6:30 p.m. and said that someone was breaking into his neighbor’s home, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The man proceeded to confront the two suspects and even rammed their vehicle to keep them from leaving the scene, deputies said.
Deputies said the man later told them that Hall and Parker fled the area, and he chased them with his vehicle until the three of them reached a dead end road on Ernest Huss Lane in Lincolnton, then he contained the suspects until law enforcement arrived.
Both Hall and Parker have been charged with one count of breaking and entering a building general. Hall was additionally served an outstanding warrant for failure to appear.
Each has been released from the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center, Hall on a $4,500 secured bond and Parker on a $4,000 secured bond.
Neither suspect is a stranger to the law. According to the North Carolina Department of Correction website, Hall spent more than two years behind bars for drug trafficking in Gaston County in 2008. He has at least four other felonies on his record dating back to 1998 in Gaston and Cleveland County for two separate instances of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, drug possession and speeding to elude arrest.
NC DOC showed that Parker has two felonies to his name, one for larceny in Gaston County last year and another for carrying a concealed weapon in Florida in 2010.
Baker District Patrol officers assisted Detectives Matt Lykins and Kelly Paris with the investigation.
