Teen is charged
in three break-ins
A teenager has been arrested by the Wayne County Sheriff's Office and charged with nine felony offenses in connection with three break-ins.
Philip Joseph Goff, 18, of Walters Drive was charged with three counts each of breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen goods. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 secured bond.
Goff was accused of breaking into three homes Thursday in northeastern Wayne County, Detective Sgt. Rick Farfour said. The stolen property, valued at about $2,500, has been recovered.
Farfour said more arrests were possible during a further investigation.
Wayne County sheriff's deputies are investigating these reports:

*Gunshots on Monday damaged a window and the headliner of a car in the 900 block of Camp Jubilee Road, deputies said.
