Two Arrested in 12 Home Break-Ins in Winston-Salem | News
Two Winston-Salem men have been charged in at least a dozen home break-ins in the northwestern part of the city in the past three weeks.
Christopher Clark Long, 18, of Prospect Drive, and Anthony Jerome Hall, 19, of Salem Gardens Drive, were arrested on Wednesday and initially charged with breaking into a home on White Hawk Lane.
However, Winston-Salem police on Friday charged Long and Hall in connection with 11 additional home break-ins since May 27.
Police said they found a TV stolen from the White Hawk Lane residence during their initial traffic stop and arrest. Electronics from other reported thefts were found "through further investigative efforts," police said.
The additional break-ins were on houses on Belwick Drive, Brookemeade Drive, Dianne Avenue, Foxhunter Court, Limner Lane, Lynn Lee Drive, Springwater Court, Sugar Maple Court, Sunnydell Drive and Woodbriar Road.
All the break-ins occurred during daylight hours when nobody was home, police said. Most of the thefts involved electronics, police said.
Winston-Salem Police said they are working with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office and Kernersville Police to determine if Hall and Long were involved in other crimes.
Long and Hall are each facing 11 counts of felony breaking and entering, 11 counts of felony larceny, three counts of possession of stolen property and one count of felony breaking.
Long remains in jail under a $150,000 secured bond, and Hall remains in jail under a $70,000 secured bond.
