Investigators with the Goldsboro Police Department have recovered weapons, ammunition and property stolen during two separate heists that took place over the last two months, according to a press release issued Thursday.
Antwan Jamal Stackhouse, 24, of 823 S. Franklin St., is in custody under a $5,500 secured bond after turning himself in to police Wednesday.
He faces charges of second-degree burglary, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen property, safecracking and possession of stolen firearms.
The charges stem from a break-in Jan. 2 in the 1000 block of South Madison Avenue, and another in the 1200 block of Judy Place Feb. 6.
Stackhouse allegedly entered the first residence through a window and removed two safes valued at $350.
At the second residence, which he also allegedly entered through a window, Stackhouse allegedly grabbed an AR-15 assault rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and a .40 caliber semi-automatic Glock pistol. He also removed a large amount of ammunition and a flat screen television, according to the report.
The value of the property removed from the second break-in is estimated at $6,306.
According to the press release, $4,300 worth of property from the two break-ins has been recovered, including the AR-!5 and shotgun. Stackhouse is scheduled for a first appearance in Wayne County District Court Monday.
