An alert deputy’s actions resulted in the arrests of two Burlington men who are alleged to have been involved in a string of residential break-ins.
According to a Friday (Dec. 3) press release from the Alamance County sheriff’s office, a deputy on patrol along Durham Street Extension on November 20 observed a silver Monte Carlo with unique chrome rims pulling out of a driveway.
The officer recognized the vehicle’s description from a “be on the lookout for” bulletin – known among law enforcement agencies as a BOLO – put out the previous day from the Gibsonville Police Department.
According to the sheriff’s office, the deputy then stopped the vehicle and learned that the occupants had just broken into the residence where they were exiting.
Arrested were: Mario Lynndale Williams, black, male, 25, of 714 North Church Street in Burlington;
and Khalid Devontae Gwynn, black, male, 24, of 202 Rolling Road, Burlington.
Each man was charged with the same three felonies: breaking and entering; larceny after breaking and entering; and larceny of a firearm.
Williams was put under $75,000 bond; Gwynn was under $125,000 bond.
