The Roanoke Rapids Police Department reported the following, according to Chief Chuck Hasty:


Employee charged with theft

Johnson responded to Lowe’s Home Improvement on Julian R. Allsbrook Highway and met with the loss prevention about a larceny.

Tyrone was working as a cashier and had allegedly been taking money from the register she was working over a period of time.

She received a $10,000 bond and January 3 court date.

Hasty said the amount of money taken totalled around $900.


Breaking and entering, assault charges

On Wednesday around 9:45 p.m., police responded to a disturbance in the 100 block of Lewis Street.

The victims told Officer M. Hunsucker they were involved in a hit and run crash and the suspects followed them to the residence and assaulted one of the victims.

The victim ran into their residence to seek safety and the residence was broken in an attempt to get the victim.  

The suspects fled the area once the victims called 911.

Hunsucker identified one of the suspects as Joshua Patrick Brown, 31, of Roanoke Rapids.

Brown had an outstanding order for arrest.

Hunsucker located Brown on Riverview Court and attempted to arrest him for the outstanding order for arrest.

During the arrest Brown reportedly assaulted the officers by elbowing and head-butting them.

The officers did not require medical attention, Hasty said.

Brown was taken into custody and served the outstanding order for arrest.

He was also charged with breaking and entering to terrorize, two counts resisting/delaying/obstructing an officer, two counts assault on a government official and hit and run with property damage.
