Three suspects were arrested after a concerned citizen contacted the Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office about them breaking into a residence on Martin Sasser Drive in the Hazelwood Subdivision.
When deputies arrived, the three suspects, 23-year old Kendric Dashaun Person, 312 N Sixth St., Pinetops, 23-year old Maurice Rashon Evans, 1509 Cherry St., Rocky Mount and 24-year old Dalvin Detron Redmond, 290 Ellis Road, Tarboro, broke out a back window in the residence and jumped out. Deputies gave commands for the suspects to stop, but they ran into the nearby woods.
A short time later, the sheriff's office received a call that three suspects on Jenkins Farm Road were asking a resident to borrow their phone.
Deputies responded to the residence and identified the suspects as the ones who had broken into the residence on Martin Sasser Drive.
All three were arrested and charged with breaking and entering, attempted larceny and resisting a public officer. They were placed in the Edgecombe County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond. All are due in court Oct. 24.
