RALEIGH - The Raleigh Police Department says that it has arrested two young men in connection with eight residential burglaries that took place in the northeast part of the city during March.
The two suspects charged in connection with the burglaries are Marquis Daletwand Elkerson, age 18, and Jaquan Maurice Wiggs, age 17. According to police, each teen was charged with five charges of burglary, four counts of possession of stolen property and one count of resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer.
Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said that the investigation of the cases is continuing.
All of the residences were broken into between March 8th and March 30th, says the department. Property was stolen from
each location and the homes were "ransacked" at each location.
According to police, all but one of the incidents took place late in the week on Thursday or Friday and all of the burglaries were done during daytime hours, when residents were not home.
Police say that the break-ins took place on Englefield Drive, Farmington Grove Drive, Lake Ridge Drive, Cardinal Grove Boulevard, Spring Pines Way, Brimfield Court, and Coventry Ridge Drive. ::
