District 3 Investigators obtained warrants on Keithen Ralph Bennett charging him with Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon, Felony Breaking and Entering and Larceny After Breaking and Entering.  This case started with a burglary which occurred in the 1400 block of Valley Run. The homeowner came home only to find Bennett in his home stealing his valuables. The homeowner got in a fight with Bennett. However, Bennett was able to break free and run into the woods a short time later. Further investigation revealed the identity of Bennett leading to subsequent charges. Bennett is still at large. If you see him DO NOT attempt to apprehend him. Bennett is considered armed and extremely dangerous, call 911 immediately and give them a good description and the place where you saw him.

 On another note we have experienced more break-ins to motor vehicles especially in the Hope Valley Community. Most of these cars have been unlocked but all have had valuables in plain sight of the thieves. A couple of these cars were unlocked in the garage which makes it a burglary. Please put away your valuables and lock your cars before your leave your car for the night. It is always a good idea to secure your garage by lowering the door before you turn in for the night.

Remember don’t be an easy target…take care of your property and be safe.

 Finally, this is my last newsletter for a few weeks because of a medical condition which requires a surgical procedure. The newsletter however will continue and I look forward to returning very soon. Keep my family and I in your thoughts.

 Until next time…take care.
