Bond raised for burglary suspect arrested three times in a month

Posted November 25, 2009

— Fayetteville police said they arrested a 29-year-old man Tuesday morning on charges of breaking-and-entering for the third time in a month.

Officers were called out to a breaking-and-entering in progress at the Abbots Landing Apartments around 7 a.m. Tuesday, police said. Officers tracked down a car and two men matching descriptions given by witnesses.

Charges of felony conspiracy and attempted breaking-and-entering were filed against Terrell Lamont McIntyre, of 1435 Gairloch Drive, and Antonio Reginald McReynolds, 24, of 4420 Dudley Road in Hope Mills.

Both men were originally freed on separate $7,500 secured bonds after the arrests Tuesday.

At McIntyre's court appearance Wednesday, a judge granted a request from the District Attorney's Office to raise his bond to $25,000. If he makes that bond, he will be placed on pre-trial monitoring.

Police said they are investigating if the pair is responsible for other burglaries in the area.

Officers arrested McIntyre Nov. 6 after catching him at the scene of a break-in in the 5500 block of Faith Drive. He was released on bond shortly after being processed for charges of breaking-and-entering, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods.

On Oct. 25, Fayetteville police served McIntyre with outstanding warrants from Greenville on two counts each of breaking-and-entering, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods.

A charge of being a habitual felon is also pending against him, police said.

McIntyre has been imprisoned for 7 of the past 11 years and was most recently released in October 2008, according to state Department of Correction records. He has served time for armed robbery and common-law robbery, along with eight counts of second-degree burglary and four counts of felony breaking-and-entering, among other charges.

DOC records show that McReynolds has a history of possession of stolen goods and larceny charges in both North and South Carolina. He has also been convicted of hit-and-run and carrying a concealed weapon.

    It would be racist to keep him in jail.

    Yes, the original bond money needs to be forfeited! They absconded and committed more crimes. Conditions of bond are that you don't commit more crimes while out. Should be at least half a million for these thugs - and secured! And if they do get out on bond they should be restricted to home with an ankle bracelet. Fools! They need life without parole.

    You have to be joking... this makes me angry... I wish I could use the words that come to mind..

    DIDN'T ANYBODY LEARN ANYTHING FROM THE KILLINGS OF Abhijit Mahato and Eve Carson! Where's Charles Bronson when you need him...

    Can we assume the original bond money was forfeited to the state?

    Wonder how many times these thieves have gotten away with it; unsolved break ins?

    Just a matter of time before they kill someone.

    If this were an isolated occurrence it would be different, but this seems to be standard NC operating procedure. Law enforcement risk their lives to keep us safe and the courts fail us!! Over and over!!

    Bondsmen need to be outlawed. I understand the right to be able to make a bond before trial but come on. How many times is it gonna take before someone says, "maybe this guy needs to sit where he is. Locked up". And whats with the earring in the mugshot?

    Hey, if he gets out again, then kills someone, Can the family of the Dead person sue the State ?

    If the officials would keep him in prison for a long while then he would not have the chance to continue to brake into homes, etc. and rob.

    Well Iguess MAYBE they will keep him in jail this time as a repeat offender, old saying 3 strikes and you are OUT.
