— Detectives were searching for a 22-year-old man and his brothers who they believe stole multiple vehicles and threatened their victims in Cumberland and Robeson counties.

Investigators believe that Isaiah Philip Bell, of 171 Scotch Pine Road, Lumber Bridge, stole vehicles from homes and business, as well as those that had been abandoned on the highway. Bell was also under investigation for attempted vehicle thefts from at least four locations in Cumberland.

Detectives believe that Bell belongs to a gang and terrorized his victims. He should be considered armed and dangerous, deputies warned.

Bell was last seen driving a burgundy, extended-cab Ford pick-up truck, with a temporary North Carolina license tag number 14720040.

Detectives also consider Bell's brothers to be suspects: Duvell Bell, 23, of 171 Scotch Pine Road, Lumber Bridge; Kintez Michael Patterson, 26, of 2906 Midland Court, Fayetteville; and Juan Simmons, 41, of 1068 Glen Reilly Drive, Fayetteville.

Members of the public should not approach these individuals, but immediately call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.

    Gov Mikey needs to pull his head out of his.....I mean out of the sand and admit that we have a serious gang problem in NC and need a task force to track them down and eradicate them like the vermin they are. Within the criminal justice system of course.

    Wonder how many previous arrests these "fine upstanding citizens" have??

    How come people say the media is biased, in only showing people of color wanted for crimes on the news? Maybe it's because those types of people commit the majority of the crimes?? HMMM......
