A Raleigh woman has become the fourth person charged in connection with a home invasion last month on Ira B. Tart Road in northern Sampson, joining three men already behind bars under significant bonds.
Jameisha Wilkins, 20, of 1466 Apt. B, Sawyer Road, Raleigh, was charged with the two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping and breaking and entering. Suspects reportedly entered the 1624 Ira B. Tart Road residence, forcibly robbing victims
She actually received the charges on Sept. 3 but her name was withheld “pending further investigation and a possibility of more charges in connection to the incident,” Sheriff’s authorities said Friday.
Wilkins was placed under $125,000 bond for the offenses. No further charges are pending at this time, officials said.
Three men have already been charged following a lengthy investigation into the incident on Ira B. Tart Road, which occurred Aug. 23. Following the arrest of Jonquil Jalen Carroll, 21, of 127 Nicole Lane, Clinton, in connection with a Sept. 3 home invasion on Hayes Mill Road, sheriff’s authorities promised more arrests and charges would come as part of the investigation.
Quadarius Raquin Webb, 18, of 507 S. Washington Ave., Dunn, and DeMarco Shaquille Crowell, 20, of 7059 Timothy Road, Dunn, were each taken into custody last week and charged one count of breaking and entering, one count of burglary, three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and three counts of kidnapping.
Carroll was previously charged with first-degree burglary, four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, as well as four counts of kidnapping, larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle. Those charges were brought following the invasion at 3268 Hayes Mill Road, Godwin, in the early-morning hours Thursday, Sept. 3, in which four victims were assaulted and robbed at gunpoint, two of them kidnapped and assaulted further before being released.
When deputies arrived at the address, two victims stated they and two other friends were inside the residence “when three unknown black males forcibly entered the front door of the residence and held them at gunpoint,” previous information from the Sheriff’s Office stated. Victims were assaulted and robbed of personal property, and suspects stole a gold Chevy Impala.
An informational bulletin about the suspect vehicle was put out and the Mount Olive Police Department subsequently found the suspects driving the stolen vehicle on U.S. Hwy. 117, just north of N.C. Hwy. 55.
While four have now been charged in the Ira B. Tart Road case, to date, Carroll is the only suspect who has been charged in the Hayes Mill Road invasion.
Webb and Crowell remain in the Sampson County Detention Center under $1.5M bond apiece, Carroll under $3M bond.
