Arrest made in Durham assault, home break-in

Posted May 12, 2010

— A 30-year-old Durham man wanted on charges in connection with an attempted armed robbery, home break-in and assault was arrested Tuesday evening, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said.

Terry William Poole faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, attempted armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Investigators said that they believe Poole was one of four armed men who tried to rob employees leaving Domino's Pizza, 3001 Holloway St., on May 23, 2009. Shots were fired during the attempted robbery, Michael said.

Poole is also accused of being one of two men who broke into a woman's house on Ashe Street on March 5. She ran out the back door, and the men fled.

He was being held Wednesday in the Durham County jail under a $295,300 bond.

Poole's criminal record dates to 1996 and includes convictions for assault inflicting serious injury, assault and felony breaking-and-entering, according to state Department of Correction records.

    ccs1920 - Agreed. I would like a bumper sticker that says something like "If you're on public assistance Thank Me because I work and pay taxes".

    I'll bet that this 30 year old man has depended on social services for his housing, food and medical care since the day he was born. Stealing provides a little spending money and the assaults are for his amusement.
