Cary home invasion investigation continues

Posted July 12, 2016

— A Cary family is still living in fear after a home invasion and kidnapping nearly a month ago.

Authorities said five men forced themselves into a home around 2 a.m. on June 16 in the 400 block of Sandy Whispers Place, held the homeowners at gunpoint and forced one person to go to a nearby ATM to withdraw cash.

The men took electronics, jewelry, handbags and wallets from the home, in addition to an undisclosed amount of cash taken from the ATM, officials said.

Three of the five suspects involved were taken into custody on June 20.

John Battle, 23, of Dawkins Street, Durham, was charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony second-degree kidnapping and felony first-degree burglary. Tycorey Tabron, 24, of Old Zebulon Road, Wendell, and Justin Atwater, 16, of Dawkins Street, Durham, were both charged with felony accessory after the fact.

A recent search warrant revealed that investigators with the Cary Police Department are still working the case.

Photos, ledgers, gloves, masks, firearms and a resident in Wendell were seized and searched in connection to Battle, according to the search warrant.

Anyone with information about the robbery should call the Town of Cary's non-emergency line at 919-469-4012 or Crime Stoppers at 919-460-4636.

The investigation is ongoing.
