A witness to a residential break-in in progress led Goldsboro police officers to the arrest of two suspects at about noon Wednesday. An unidentified third suspect remains free.

Emmanuel Pigford IV and Takel Miller, both 21, are charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and possession of stolen property. The two men are currently being held in the Wayne County Jail under $4,500 and $8,500 secured bonds respectively.

Three men were witnessed going in and out of a residence at 1209 N. John St. Items taken from the residence included two flat screen televisions, a Play Station 3 game console and games and a laptop computer.

The suspects fled when police arrived. Officers chased the men on foot, but one managed to escape.

Pigford and Miller were tracked by K-9 officer "Suzie," and her handler to 1111 N. John St., also broken into, and were arrested. The value of the stolen property was listed at $3,000. More than $1,400 worth of property was recovered, according to police.
