DEPUTIES: 31 Vehicle Break-In Solved With Arrests

Deputies in Beaufort County say they have solved more than two dozen vehicle break-ins throughout the county.

Rashad Pridgen, 22, and Brantley Sutton, 16, both of Washington, were charged Tuesday with 27-counts of breaking or entering and larceny from a motor vehicle, four counts of breaking or entering a motor vehicle, and one count each of felony breaking or entering, felony larceny and larceny of a firearm.

Deputies say since July they have received numerous reports of vehicle break-ins in the areas of Cypress Landing, Whichard's Beach Road, Washington Park, Honey Pod Farm, Mimosa Shores, McCotter's Marina Road, and Pamlico Beach. The victims reported a variety of items stolen including I-pods, GPS navigation systems, sunglasses and firearms.

Sutton turned himself in at the Magistrate's Office and jailed on a $70,000 bond, while Pridgen was served while at the Pitt County Detention Center. His bond was set at $300,000.

    Wow. Some of these people that keep commenting up here need to learn how to spell. And of course, people are going to "hate" on them, not because they smoke pot, but because they broke into multiple cars/houses. (Police forgot to mention the house break ins in Smallwood) So stop trying to stick up for them. What they did was VERY wrong, and they deserve to pay for their actions.

    LOL pot has nothing to do with this. I went to school with the oldest one. I think its pathetic how you go around stealing things that people worked hard to pay for. GET A JOB LIKE THE REST OF US!! O and btw, why should ppl stop 'hating' on them?!?! Wouldnt you be 'hating' if they had broke into your vehicle & stole things you worked to buy?? I know I would!

      Most folks coming out of prison are worse than they were going in. It is a shame that the choices he made seemed right to him at the time, and hope that he can learn not to make such choices in the future.

      No, they aren't glad, probably think these boys were framed by the crooked cops or might have been buying some of the stuff these guys stole.

      Perhaps you are confusing "cop haters" with people who are critical of the holice.
