A 24-year-old Goldsboro woman, already behind bars for leading deputies on a high-speed chase through Roseboro Tuesday, has been charged in four break-ins reported hours after the chase.
Miranda Virginia Powell, 24, of 110 Oak Knoll Drive, Goldsboro, was charged Wednesday with three counts of breaking and entering; one count of attempted breaking and entering; one count of larceny after breaking and entering; and one count of possession of stolen goods in connection with four break-ins.
In the early morning hours of Tuesday morning, Powell allegedly tried to break-in to a vehicle parked in front of Wal-Mart, located inside the Sampson Crossing Shopping Plaza. She then took off towards Roseboro, eventually leading Sampson County Sheriff’s deputies on a high speed chase through Roseboro.
She was later charged with speeding; reckless driving to endanger; fleeing to elude arrest; and possession of an open container.
The new charges stem from break-ins that took place late Monday evening. Reports were filed Tuesday from Dots Busy Bee, where a window was damaged and a cash register was taken; Freedom Mobile Plus, where a glass window was reported busted; Hunter’s Cafe, where a glass window was reportedly busted; and Quality Auto, where a vehicle window was damaged.
Powell was given a combined bond of $30,000 with a trial date of June 8. She was also cited by the Clinton Police Department for the damage to the vehicle in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
The $30,000 bond will be added to the $10,000 bond and a trial date of July 11 that she is facing from the chase charges.
According to the North Carolina Department of Corrections, Powell has no previous convictions.
