A 23-year-old Sampson County man is facing myriad felonies after being linked to three separate area break-ins that took place in early to mid-December.
Jomario Hand, 23, of 215 Tarheel Drive, was charged with two counts of breaking and entering; two counts of larceny after breaking and entering; two counts of possession of stolen goods; possession of a stolen firearm; and one count of obtaining property under false pretenses.
He was arrested at his home, located south of Clinton and just off Reedsford Road, last Friday evening, Dec. 30, and taken to the Sampson County Detention Center where he was jailed under a $37,500 bond. His trial date has been set for Jan. 6.
According to reports released Tuesday, Hand was linked to break-ins that took place on Dec. 7 at a residence on Old Warsaw Road; on Dec. 15 at a residence on Hargrove Road; and on Dec. 19 at a residence located on Bass Lake Road.
The suspect was arrested nine months ago in connection with a breaking, entering and larceny at a Sampson County home. A week following that arrest, he was taken into custody again after a run-in with the Elizabethtown Police Department, where he was charged with assault on a government official, resisting, delaying or obstructing and carrying a concealed weapon.
He has only been charged in the crimes, not convicted of any incidents, according to the North Carolina Department of Corrections.
