On April 3, 2023, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to Cameron Dr., Asheboro, in reference to a burglary of a motor vehicle. Upon arrival, deputies gathered information and determined two suspects had fled the area just prior to arrival; one into the woods to the west of the residence and the other male walking south on Cameron Dr. toward Robbins Cir. Additional deputies responded to patrol the perimeter area and search for the suspects.

He was arrested and transported to the Randolph County Detention Center where the magistrate found probable cause for the charge of felony breaking into a vehicle. He was issued a $10,000 secure bond and a first appearance was set April 3, 2023, in Randolph County District Court.
