Four people have been charged and another wanted in a June 2 armed robbery attempt in the 900 block of Monroe Street.

Three of the four in the case surrendered to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office today while another was arrested Monday, Roanoke Rapids police Chief Chuck Hasty said in a statement.
Investigator Obert Wiltsie described the men charged in the case as friends and associates. Two of them stated to investigators they were brothers.
Wiltsie and officers J. Spragins and J. Shelburne Monday arrested Aaron Addunus Powell, 18, of Roanoke Rapids, on outstanding warrants for attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy.
Powell received a $10,000 bond and August 2 court date.

The following surrendered to the sheriff’s office today and face the same charges as Powell:

SKii’e Devoe Alston, 22, of Littleton

Darius Lamar Alston, 19, of Littleton

Key-Luntay Ashod Brickell, 20, of Roanoke Rapids

They all received $5,000 bonds and August 2 court dates.

Police continue to look for Vinlente Shamar Barnes of Roanoke Rapids. He is encouraged to surrender, Hasty said.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to contact Wiltsie at 252-533-2823 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
The charges stem from a case investigated by Wiltsie where the victim reported around 10:30 p.m. they went to the back porch and saw a person with a mask and gloves on walking up.
When confronted by the victim the person ran.
A witness gave chase and found there were more people with the first suspect.
The witness pursuit of the man ended when the suspects pointed a gun.

Clanton was charged with breaking and entering, breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, two counts larceny after breaking and entering, felony possession of stolen goods, larceny and misdemeanor possession of stolen goods.
He received a $5,000 bond and August 2 court date.
The charges stem from an investigation by Wiltsie on two separate reports; one reported on June 22 in the 200 block of Charlotte Street and one on June 24 in the 400 block of Rapids Street.
In the reports a vehicle and a shed were broken into and items taken from them. The stolen items were then sold and recovered by investigators.
