Aberdeen police arrest two for breaking and entering
ABERDEEN – The Aberdeen Police Department has made two more arrests related to the recent string of breaking and entering cases, according to police chief Henry Randle.
Oleathia J. Randle, 18, and a 17-year-old juvenile, both of Aberdeen, were each charged with breaking and entering after B&M Pawn Shop was broken into Sunday, Feb. 10.
“I had received a tip the two had some of the weapons stolen. After a pat down of the subjects, I asked Oleathia’s grandfather for permission to search the home and found two weapons that matched stolen guns from the pawn shop,” Randle said.
Randle stated that he found ammunition and other weapons in the search. The APD is running a trace with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to find the rightful owners of the guns since they weren’t registered as stolen.
Oleathia is suspected to be connected with several other breaking and entering cases in Aberdeen.
“We’ve got a few cases we can prove as grand larceny and we’re just building our case on Oleathia. We’re in the process of adjudicating the juvenile we arrested so he can be charged as an adult.
“I want to thank the people for calling us with tips and getting the word out on suspicious activity on the Aberdeen Neighborhood Watch page on Facebook. The more information we can get, the more arrests we can make,” Randle said.
