Roanoke Rapids police are investigating other crimes possibly linked to a man who was shot following a break-in on Raleigh Street last month, Chief Chuck Hasty confirmed today.

Hasty said the crimes police are investigating fit the same method of operation as the Raleigh Street breaking and entering Wade Carter III was charged with.

These other crimes involve the breaking and entering of residences of single women.

Hasty would not elaborate until investigation is completed.

Carter remains in custody and is waiting on an August 1 appearance in Halifax County District Court.

The police department has turned over evidence for analysis to the State Bureau of Investigation crime lab. It includes evidence from Raleigh Street and other crime scenes.

“We’re waiting on lab results,” Hasty said. “The elected district attorney (Valerie Asbell) has requested the tests be expedited. We want to be right with the DNA evidence before any charges are filed.”

Carter was the target of a manhunt last month when he reportedly broke into the residence of an elderly victim in the 500 block of Raleigh Street.

The victim was awakened by the noise and retrieved a firearm. The elderly victim fired multiple shots and struck Carter at least once.

Police identified Carter after receiving information a man was at the hospital with a possible gunshot wound.
