— Two Durham men were arrested Monday night in connection with an early morning home invasion in Cary.

Authorities responded to a burglary in progress at a home on Spencer Crest Road just before 5 a.m. and determined that six subjects had forced their way into the home and demanded money. The burglars then fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a vehicle that was later located by the Durham Police Department, Cary police said.

Howard Freeman Earl, Jr., 21, of Guess Road and Terrell Lee McLamb, 20, of E. Cornwallis Road were both charged with first-degree burglary, armed robbery, and second-degree kidnapping. Both were being held at the Wake County Detention Center Monday night.

If convicted on all charges, Earl and McLamb could face up to 32 years in prison, police said.

Authorities said more arrests are expected as the investigation into the incident continues. Anybody with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-226-2746.

    According to the Wake counry arrest records, it looks like 4 men were arrested. All at the same time, and same location. Wonder why the article only shows two?

    I have something special waiting for you boys if you try this at my house. Double barrel justice.

    Wow, that has to be terrifying. And surprising that they would go all the way to Cary to do this? They must have realized that it would be more lucrative. Must be making the Cary people mad to know the Durham criminals are coming to Cary for their dirty work. I hope these two are locked away for a very long time.

    These guys are suspects in other home invasions over the last few weeks, so my guess is that they'll go away for a very long time.

    There is an obvious recurring theme to these crimes

    I supervise Howard and Terrell at the Rocket surgerey facility near the kitten factory. They are good boys. They were picking flowers from our field of daiseys next to pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when this happened.

    6 men, invading an *occupied* dwelling at 5am?!?
    This is a whole new level of confidence and organization. How terrifying would that be? ?
    I agree with Lewis and the masked 'Real libertine'. Maximum penalty if homeowners don't get them first. We're taking about taking any sense of security away from honest citizens. Makes me sick
