A teenager who was charged with trespassing on and damaging the yard of Wayne County Sheriff's Capt. Buddy King now faces felony charges.
Gregory Debarge Wooten, 18, of Laurel Patch Drive was charged Wednesday by the Sheriff's Office with breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen goods. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of an additional $20,000 secured bond.
When Wooten's van was searched Tuesday at King's home on Stoney Creek Church Road, property was found that belonged to another victim who had reported a break-in at his home on Sheridan Forest Road.
Detective Sgt. Tammy Odom said the investigation of the break-in was continuing.
Wooten had been jailed in lieu of a $3,000 on the two misdemeanor charges, second-degree trespass and injury to personal property, in the King case.

Jenkins' boyfriend, the alleged gunman, Renell Lamar Wooten, 30, of Peachtree Street, was arrested April 29 and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill while inflicting serious injury and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Wooten, who was accused of shooting Quaashon Phillips, was jailed in lieu of a $1 million secured bond. He also was charged with a felony drug offense.
