Suspect caught

Wayne County Sheriff's Office officers arrested a man who allegedly broke into a home off Antioch Road in Pikeville.

Approximately $10,000 worth of property was stolen from the home.

Julian Earl Langley Jr., 38, of Sir Richards Drive, Pikeville, was charged with breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen property, said detective Sgt. Carl Lancaster. Most of the property has been recovered.

During the investigation, Lancaster noticed a woman trying to hide something in nearby shrubbery. Pamela Valadez was charged with possession of marijuana after detectives discovered a half-pound of marijuana. Inside Ms. Valadez's home, they allegedly found some of the property taken in a break-in Langley allegedly was involved in.

Langley was being held at the Wayne County Jail on a $10,000 bond. Ms. Valedez was being held on a $6,500 bond, officials said.
