Four teens charged in Raleigh, Cary crimes

Posted December 24, 2010

— Four teens have been charged in connection with an attempted armed robbery in Raleigh and a burglary in Cary, authorities said Friday.

Cedrick Antonio High and Shaquille Dshawn Hunter, both 16, face charges of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle in the Dec. 23 attempted robbery, which happened outside a convenience store on the corner of Lake Wheeler and Tryon roads in Raleigh.

Police say two armed men approached a woman at an ATM and that someone fired shots at her vehicle. The woman was not injured.

Authorities arrested the men a short time later after they crashed a stolen white 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV near Lake Wheeler Road and Interstate 40, while trying to flee from police.

In addition to High and Hunter, police detained two 14-year-old boys.

One was served with juvenile petitions for attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle.

The other was served with juvenile petitions for conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Cary police subsequently named the four suspects in a home burglary that happened Wednesday on Windstream Way in Cary.

High and Hunter each face charges of first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary in that case, and the two 14-year-olds were served juvenile petitions on the same charges, Cary police said.

    1. why would the school system be blamed for letting kids out for a holiday break. that is plain out riduculous.
    2. where are the parents of these 4 boys at a young age?
    3. why are 14 year olds hanging out with 16 year old that are not allowed to have more than 1 unrelated person in teh car with them while driving. that should be a driving license violation..DUH
    4. regardless if it was a school day they still tried to rob a store. REALLY people. get a life

    "..that someone fired shots at her vehicle.." Should this be attempting murder charge?? Just saying.

    Cedrick High is 16 and already has been in trouble for plenty. I looked him up on the court website.

    Entered too soon.

    December 22 was the first day of break. Kids went Monday and Tuesday. Couldn't really get much closer than that.

    "Well I guess Christmas holiday break from school provided these children with too much idle time. Next thing you know the "parents"( and I use this term loosely) of kids like this will blame the schools for taking holiday breaks."

    December 22 was a school day.
