Man Charged With Kidnapping Sheriff Employee

Deputies say a man has been arrested for allegedly following home a Pitt County Sheriff's Office employee.

Deputies say an employee in the communication office was driving home after getting off work at 6:00 a.m. That's when the woman noticed a motorcycle following her home and driving erratically down Charles Boulevard.

The employee didn't go home, and instead pulled into Signature Drive and that's when lawmen say she was blocked in and called police.

Matthew Morace has been charged with second-degree kidnapping and reckless and careless driving.

Deputies say claims that he was following the woman because her car was smoking. But the employee says her car wasn't smoking.

He was placed in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $10,000 bond.
