A Roanoke Rapids man was charged on breaking and entering counts Wednesday following an investigation by the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.


Chief Deputy Scott Hall said in a statement investigation began when the sheriff’s office received a report of larcenies on December 7 in the Roanoke Rapids area.

Detective R.M. Brown and Lieutenant J. Bozard developed Jacob Allen Walker, 20, as an alleged suspect in the case.

The detective and lieutenant recovered some property which was sold to two pawn shops and discovered some items went to a local salvage yard.

Brown charged Walker with five counts obtaining property by false pretense, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, five counts misdemeanor larceny and five counts misdemeanor possession of stolen goods.

Walker received a $10,000 bond and awaits a January 16 court date.

Hall said value of the stolen property was around $1,550 and value of the recovered property was around $665.
