Two teenagers were arrested before dawn today after Goldsboro police investigated a suspicious vehicle in the McDonalds restaurant parking lot on Wayne Memorial Drive.
Jeremy Edward Jenkins, 18, of Durham Lake Road, Dudley, and Broderick Jermaine Randall, 19, of Raleigh were charged with felonious possession of stolen property. Each was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $5,000 secured bond.
About $1,500 worth of recording equipment was recovered from the vehicle. The property had been reported stolen in October.
A small garage at 103 Grey Stone Drive was destroyed Thursday night in a fire of an undermined cause, a fire official said.
Mar Mac Volunteer Fire Chief Bill Harrell said the fire could have been resulted from one of several reasons but he could not pinpoint a specific cause.
The garage was valued at about $2,500 and contents at $5,000, Harrell said.
The fire also blistered the paint on a neighbor's truck and damaged vinyl siding on his home.
About 15 Mar Mac firefighters answered the 7:30 p.m. call with three trucks. Thoroughfare and Grantham volunteers assisted.
