All Suspects Arrested In Home Invasion/Robbery

The third suspect in a Pitt County robbery is behind bars.

Saturday April 23rd, Pitt County Sheriff's Deputies say Orinzo Barnhill turned himself into authorities.

The 29-year-old is charged with 1st Degree Burglary and robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was put in the Pitt County Detention Center on a $300,00.00 bond.

They're still looking for Orinzo Barnhill, who is considered armed and dangerous.

Thursday authorities arrested Jason Allsbrooks for the crime.

Deputies say the three are accused of busting into a woman's home outside of Pitt County with guns and stealing money, jewelry and cell phones.

Deputies say after a short chase the three's getaway car crashed and they took off.

Previous Story:

Deputies say they have one man in custody and are looking for two more after a home invasion Wednesday night. The man held is 25-year-old Jason Jerome Allsbrooks.

Pitt County deputies say it happened at a home on Scott Lane, outside of Greenville, and the victims were told to get on the floor and were robbed.

One victim tells WITN News that she and a friend were watching TV around 10:30 p.m. when they heard a knock at the door. She thought it was her son, who had just left. Instead two armed men broke the door down and asked for her safe. The woman says the gunmen forced her to open the safe, taking rings, $300 in cash and two cell phones. During the robbery they were told to lie on the floor with pillows over their heads.

The victim tells us there was recently substantially more money in the safe and she thinks the robbers knew about that.

A N.C. Department of Corrections inmate search revealed Allsbrooks has prior convictions on at least three felony charges including possession of a firearm by a felon and selling schedule II narcotics.

    as a person who used to be involved with one of the defendents (oj) I can say that he has had multiple opportunities to do right and he has continued to get in trouble time after time, stop going to school, and lose jobs, I know he hasnt even seen one of his children in 6 years. to rob your family is terrible and i will always love oj but he has become a completely different person

    I agree with "excellent". The PCSO is top notch. I am sick and tired of all the negative remarks! These are a group of wonderful people doing their jobs. There seems to be a lot jealousy floating around!!

    I know a bunch of people with a good heart who are between a rock and a hard place but they aren't commuting crimes like this one.

    Why do people portray themselves as ignorant when "speaking" here as Latasha did in her 3 different posts. It seems as if she does have some education. Why try to appear ignorant and uneducated? Is that the thing to do now? Or is that just an excuse to claim "racist" toward the rest of us?
