Roanoke Rapids police Wednesday arrested a man allegedly responsible for a 2010 vehicle breaking and entering by using a partial fingerprint taken from the original crime scene.

Sequan Jamel Robinson, 25, was arrested around 7 p.m. by officers D. Hundley and C. Batchelor for breaking and entering a motor vehicle, larceny and possession of stolen goods for the June 2010 crime which was initially investigated by Investigator G.L. Williams.

During the initial processing of the vehicle a partial print was located and submitted to the Automated Fingerprint Identification System for comparison.

The AFIS is a national database.

In September, the system was upgraded and a reverse lookup matched Robinson’s prints.

He was jailed on $5,000 bond and has a December 6 court date.

Hasty said the work Williams did on the case, “Shows we do process but it takes some time. He took the initial report. It shows he’s a hard worker and is trying to solve these cases.”


Assault suspect  

On Wednesday at approximately 4 p.m., Carson McBride Rawles III, 24, of Garysburg, came to the department to have warrants served.

Rawles was arrested for breaking and entering, assault inflicting serious injury and two counts damage to property.

He received a $6,000 bond and January 3 court date.

The charges stem from an investigation by Officer J. Mason into a report in June of 2016 where the victim reported several people kicked in the door and assaulted the victim.

The victim required medical attention for the injuries.

Rawles was the last person wanted in the case.

Santravean Lavar Watson, 25. surrendered October of 2016.

Dashawn Jamal Harris,18, was arrested on a traffic stop by North Carolina State Highway Patrol Trooper J.D. Warren on February 9.


Alleged shoplifters caught with drugs

On Sunday at approximately 9 a.m., the department responded to Walmart about a person who  allegedly attempted to take items from the store and was fleeing in a vehicle.

Lieutenant  J. Baggett spotted the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop on Premier Boulevard.

He encountered Kristie Lee Reynolds, 39, of New York, and Steven Vincent Masciarelli, 48, of Florida, inside the vehicle.  

During a search of the vehicle narcotics and paraphernalia were found.

Masciarelli was arrested and charged with larceny, attempted larceny, no operator’s license and open container.

He received a $1,000 bond and December 8 court date.

Reynolds was arrested and charged with aiding and abetting larceny, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, no operator’s license and open container.

She received the same bond and court date as Masciarelli.
