A man with a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1990 was arrested this week on felony habitual larceny counts.

Officers located Frederick Carlton Mitchum, 49, at West Tenth near Rapids Street, Roanoke Rapids police Chief Chuck Hasty said in a statement.
Mitchum had outstanding warrants for his arrest and was charged with three counts of habitual larceny and three counts possession of stolen goods.
The habitual felony count carries a weight that should he be charged with larceny in the future it will be a felony count regardless of what is stolen, Hasty said.
Mitchum was arrested around 11 p.m. Monday.
The counts stem from an investigation by Officer O. Wiltsie into items taken from the Great Falls Shopping Center Food Lion several times in March.
He received a $15,000 bond and June 12 court date.

Traffic stop

On Wednesday around 10 p.m., Lieutenant P. Parks conducted a traffic stop for a violation on Julian R. Allsbrook Highway at Roanoke Avenue.
Leon Strickland III, 21, of Roanoke Rapids, was cited for operating a vehicle with no driver’s license.
Officer R. Cross’s dog Midas indicated on the vehicle and narcotics paraphernalia were found.
Brittany Alexis Holland, 19, of Roanoke Rapids, was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. Amber Lee Rychwalski, 28, of Roanoke Rapids, was arrested and charged with possession of heroin and James Randall Todd Davis, 25, of Roanoke Rapids, was arrested for an outstanding order for arrest for larceny.
Strickland and Holland were released until their June 16 court dates.
Rychwalski received a $2,500 bond and May 31 court date.
Davis received a $1,000 bond and May 11 court date.
Master Officer A. Salmon and Officer H. grimes assisted.

On Thursday around 8:45 a.m., Lieutenant C.L. Vaught and investigators J.K. Davis and G.L. Williams located Terrence Jamaal Robinson, 21, of Roanoke Rapids, in the 100 block of Roanoke Avenue.
Robinson had outstanding warrants and was charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle and possession of stolen goods.
He received a $10,000 bond and a May 3 court date.
The charges stem from an investigation by Vaught on April 22 after the victim reported their vehicle was broken into and items were taken from it.

Around midnight, Cross conducted a traffic stop for a violation in the 1000 block of Franklin Street.
