Break-ins charged

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office has charged a LaGrange man with breaking and entering.

Matthew Anthony Bride, 24, of Jeffrey Drive, LaGrange, was charged with two counts each of breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen property. The charges were related to two break-ins, one in 2004.

Bride was also charged with forgery, uttering and resisting a law enforcement officer. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail under $56,000 bond.

R.D. Chunn of the Sheriff's Office was the arresting officer.

Armed robbery

Police responded to a report of an armed robbery on Royall Avenue Saturday morning. A Goldsboro teen was later arrested.

Police were called at 11:30 a.m. to 1601 E. Royall Ave. James Edward Summerlin, 62, an employee of Advance Auto Parts on Berkeley Boulevard, told police that he had been approached by two black males, one with a handgun, who demanded he give them a moneybag.

The two suspects fled toward Fairview Circle with the moneybag and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Shortly after 1 p.m., Officer B. Smith arrested Derick Cumberlander, 17, of Marigold Street, at an apartment on Holly Street and charged him with armed robbery and second-degree trespassing. Cumberlander was placed in the Wayne County Jail under $35,500 bond.

No other arrest was reported as of press time.

She is in the county jail under $35,000 bond.
