Man accused of stealing three firearms in Hyde County

An Eastern Carolina man is facing charges Tuesday morning after deputies say he broke into a residence and stole multiple firearms.

The Hyde County Sheriff's Office put arrest warrants out for Wesley Williams Jr. in connection to a break-in at a residence on North Lake Road in Engelhard back in December. Deputies say three firearms were stolen during the break in.

Pitt County deputies picked Williams up on those warrants on Monday. He's facing multiple charges, including breaking and entering, larceny of a firearm and safe cracking.

Williams is currently being held at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $118,000 bond.
