A Dunn man remained in jail Monday afternoon under a $100,000 bond, facing a string of felony charges related to four Sampson break-ins that occurred over the last few months.

Randy Bonanza Emanuel Jr., 32, of 400 Hay Barn Road, Dunn, was taken into custody last Thursday afternoon following an investigation that led officers to suspect him with thefts that occurred in June, July and September.

He is charged with three counts burglary, four counts larceny and four counts of possession of stolen property, according to Sampson sheriff’s reports.

Emanuel is charged in connection with the following incidents:

• A breaking and entering that occurred on Stewart Road June 28. In that incident a 42-inch television valued at $375 and assorted tools valued at $25 were stolen;

• A BE&L that occurred on July 6 at a residence on Fayetteville Highway. Assorted tools valued at $2,000 were stolen and $25 damage reported to a chain on a gate;

• A Sept. 21 larceny of a stainless steel commercial sink valued at $900 and a stainless steel table valued at $800 from a Maple Grove Church Road, Newton Grove trailer on the victim’s property; and

• An Oct. 4 larceny of auto parts and accessories from another Maple Grove Church Road residence.

Sampson Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Pope said a probe into the break-ins and larcenies led officers to suspect Emanuel in the incidents.

He is scheduled to make his first appearance in Sampson County District Court on Oct. 25.
