Fayetteville teens accused of burglary, DWI, fleeing police

Posted November 11, 2011

— Fayetteville police arrested four 16-year-olds who are accused of breaking into an apartment, stealing a television and fleeing from police Thursday. 

Police responded to Cambridge Arms Apartment Complex around 11 p.m. after a neighbor called 911 to report that four teens had kicked in the front door of an apartment, stolen a TV and driven away in a dark green Ford Crown Victoria.

Officers found a vehicle matching the description and tried to pull over the car, but it fled at a high rate of speed, according to police. During the pursuit, the driver lost control of the car, came to a stop and all four teens got out and ran away.

Officers caught the teens and found a TV and rifle in the car, police said.

Ian Caleb Detar, of Forest View Drive, is charged with driving while intoxicated, fleeing to elude arrest, second-degree burglary and conspiracy. He was being held on a $32,000 secured bond.

Sierra Maria Morefield, of Larry Street, Anthony Lee Richardson Jr., of Buttonwood Avenue, and Antoine Juan Richardson, of Eldorado Drive, are all charged with second-degree burglary and conspiracy. They were each being held on $25,000 secured bonds.

    It drives me nuts to see such young kids constantly in the news lately?! I dont want to blame they're parents, but I cant help but wonder why they're parents didnt know more about what they're children are up to? I think we need to start making examples of the youth that is getting into so much trouble. maybe if other children see the kind of punishment other kids they're age are getting then this might eventually cease. This is so sad...

    Yes I suppose your right nccrew. Put them in jail and throw away the key. Having been there I do know a little bout serving time. It's the best place in the world to learn crime.
    the drug trade, and violence. One thing is for sure, you don't ever come out the same as when you go in. Some do change for the better but the majority just get worse. I do believe they need punishment. Carrying a gun in no joke. But also these KIDS need counseling and positive reinforcemt. If you want to make them monsters then I say your right on target.

    Bring back the Works Progress Administration (WPA) programs from the 1930's. Give the idle teens something productive to do with their idle time.

    I too do not think that a lot of these negative comments are warranted, but neither do I think that we should be making excuses for them. This is more than a case of an immature mistake - it is a serious crime. It deserves punishment for the crime and yes, some type of counseling, but before you are so willing to release the people back out into society, remember that could have been your residence they broke into. To say they are kids and do not know any better is ridiculous. They are not four year olds - they are sixteen. They made a choice and with choices come consequences.

    The fact that some of you are defending the monstrous acts by the above aforementioned criminals is disturbing. At some point, even a five year old can deduce that arming yourself with a rifle, breaking into a home, stealing property, driving while drunk, and fleeing from the police is wholly wrong, illegal, and a insidious act.
    Good parenting or bad parenting, all of the acts that these "kids" were involved in are terrible and wrong, they were not accidents and didn't just occur by happenstance. They required forethought, malice, and a blatant disrespect for others.
    Jail, for a long time follow by prison for an even longer time is appropriate.

    I don't agree with poster saying these kids are trash. I bet my bottom dollar they were going to buy drugs with the stolen loot. Drug addiction, even at a young age can make you do things you would never do in sobriety. Good kids, bad kids, all make mistakes while using drugs or trying to obtain them. It is a sad fact of life in our society. Yes they need punishment. But that doesn't include labeling them losers and lost causes for life and bashing their parents for bad parenting. They need help now and they may not make this mistake again. Unfortunately we are losing the drug war here in the USA while some other countries are trying new methods with good results. I dont know what the answer is. But I do know good people make mistakes. All people, especially young immature kids should have the support and help they need to correct themselves. Calling them names and making ugly comments will only continue their negative path in life. Help these kids. Someday your kids may m

    Remember these are just kids and do not know any better, whenn should have arrested them they should be sent home and their parents told to handle the problem. This is what the public belives beside the cops where just picking on them. If we place them in jail we just over look the problem and the parents can not correct this also we put lables on them, this is not what they system is about.

    Sorry but they are over 16 time to learn what being an adult oin jail is all about. Maybe MOM and DAD did know something after all about right and wrong

    I agree with airbornemonty. A year in "the juvie" would do these kids a lot of good.

  • hunter38 Nov 11, 2011

    Perhaps not. without knowing the parents who could say.

    To classifed: Yeah you're right heck these kids more than likely don't even know their parents
