MOUNT OLIVE -- Mount Olive police are searching for two men, one of them identified, in connection with a pair of violent break-ins pulled off simultaneously on Dec. 31.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Shawnquel Camorra Futrelle, 25, of Goldsboro. Futrelle has tattoos on his right and left hands of "Pain" and "Love," respectively, and is thought to be traveling in a gray Chrysler 200. He is considered armed and dangerous.
The break-ins occurred at 3:30 a.m. when an armed man, allegedly Futrelle, forced his way into a residence at 416 E. Franklin St. Once inside, and with his weapon pressed to head of the victim's 8-year-old child, he demanded money. He then fired the semi-automatic pistol he was carrying into the bedroom wall. The victim surrendered her purse which, according to the press release issued by police, was "full of cash and gift cards."
While all of this was going on, and just around the corner, a second break-in was occurring, this one at 1018 S. Johnson St.
A second suspect burst in and demanded money and drugs at gunpoint. He, too, fired a single shot into a wall and fled with stolen items in hand.
"The working hypothesis right now is that they are connected," Detective Sgt. C.J. Weaver said.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Futrelle or about the nature of these crimes is asked to contact the Mount Olive Police Department at 919-658-5031, or Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255. Tips can also be texted to 919-222-4230.
All information provided to Crime Stoppers remains anonymous and information leading to a felony arrest is eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
