The Wayne County Sheriff's Office has arrested two and identified two more suspects in a burglary ring plaguing Nahunta, Pikeville and Rosewood.

Two suspects remain at large.

Alexander Miguel White, 19, and Roland Bill Sanders, 24, are wanted in connection with the break-ins. So far, as many as nine break-ins have been attributed to the six suspects, but more might either have been unsuccessful or gone unreported, Sheriff's Office investigators say.

Already in custody in connection with the break-ins are Anthony Maurice Tramel, 19, of 106 Mary Lane, and Alijah Jamaul Moore, 18, of 508 W. New Hope Road. Tramel, facing 10 counts total of various charges including breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and obtaining property by false pretense, is being held in the Wayne County Jail under a $65,000 secured bond.

Moore's bond is significantly lower, just $15,000, because he is only charged with a single count each of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods.

On June 7, the Sheriff's Office announced similar charges against mother-and-son suspects Melissa Tramel Bryant, 47, and Johnathan Michael Bryant, 17, both of 106 Mary Lane. His bond was set at $145,000 for eight counts each of breaking and entering and larceny, while his mother's bond was set at $30,000 for three counts each of the same crimes.

Ms. Bryant is also believed to be either the mother or stepmother of Anthony Tramel. She is listed on his arrest sheet as one of two nearest relatives.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of either White or Sanders is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 919-731-1480 or contact Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255. Text tips to Crime Stoppers at 919-222-4230.

All calls remain anonymous and tips leading to a felony arrest pay up to $1,000 cash rewards.
