KNIGHTDALE — Police arrested a man they believe is responsible for three residential break-ins and larcenies in the Carrington Woods subdivision.
An arrest report indicates the suspect, Dyquan Jamarl Boulware, 19, is also a fugitive from Chesapeake, Va., where he is wanted for grand larceny.
Knightdale police charged Boulware Aug. 27 with three counts of breaking and entering, and larceny. He was also charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense for attempting to pawn or sell items taken in two of the break-ins, according to Knightdale Police Capt. Tony Lashley.
Two of the break-ins took place Aug. 5, when 24 items valued at a total of about $5,000 were reported stolen. Boulware is also accused of taking $750 worth of items from another home on Aug. 13.
The items stolen in all three incidents were mostly jewelry and electronic equipment, according to police.
Knightdale police Chief Jason Godwin said Boulware has been traveling back and forth from Chesapeake, where he is from originally, to the Triangle area.
“Sometime while in Virginia, (Boulware) was charged with grand larceny and was supposed to go to court, and did not appear and came back here,” Godwin said. “We discovered the active warrant (in Virginia) during the investigative process when we identified him as a suspect.”
The Chesapeake Police Department declined to provide specific details on the grand larceny charge.
Knightdale detectives learned Boulware was most recently staying at a home in Garner. He was picked up by Garner police and transported to Knightdale because of the Aug. 16 warrants for the local break-ins.
Godwin said once all charges have been filed and remedied in Wake County, it appears Boulware will be extradited to Virginia to face the charge pending there.
Boulware remained in Wake County Jail as of Thursday in lieu of $350,000 bond. His next court date is set for Sept. 18.
