PINEHURST — Police have charged four Lumberton men in a string of vehicle break-ins in Pinehurst.
Kale Lennon Rigsbee, Randall Hunt, Matthew Jeremy Hunt and Dock Lee Hunt were apprehended with the help of the Lumberton Police Department and the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office, according to a statement from the Pinehurst Police Department.
According to the statement, the men are charged with several vehicle break-ins in West Pinehurst on July 14 and July 15 and are facing pending charges for additional break-ins in the Pinehurst Manor community over the weekend.
Leads following the initial break-ins brought Pinehurst officers’ attention to 27-year-old Rigsbee, who lives on Vann Drive, the statement said. Rigsbee was arrested on July 23 at the West Side Barber Shop on Fifth Street in Lumberton. He was charged with five counts of felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, four counts of felony financial card theft and four counts of larceny from a motor vehicle. Rigsbee was jailed at the Moore County Detention Center before posting a $1,000 secured bond.
“During this initial arrest, items, receipts and records pertinent to the investigation were seized that led to the identification of additional suspects who were also active participants in the cases,” the Police Department statement said.
Officers with the Pinehurst Police Department, Lumberton Police Department and Robeson County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday searched a home at 4421 Old Allenton Road in Lumberton to recover “stolen property and to locate and arrest the identified suspects involved in both series of breaking and entering cases.”
Officers at the scene arrested Randall Hunt, 26, Matthew Hunt, 27, and Dock Hunt, 31. Each has been charged with five counts of felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, four counts of felony financial card theft and four counts of larceny from a motor vehicle.
The three men have been placed in the Moore County Detention Center. Randall Hunt, of Saddletree Road, was jailed under a $26,000 secured bond. Matthew Hunt, of Old Allenton Road, and Dock Hunt, of Fork Pine Road, were each jailed under $25,000 secured bonds.
“Chief Earl Phipps would like to personally thank Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey and Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeill for the excellent teamwork and professionalism displayed by each of their respective agencies during the course of this investigation,” the statement said.
