— A 17-year-old man was charged Friday with breaking into Fuquay-Varina Middle School earlier this month, according to arrest warrants.

Rahzay Melguan Garrett, of Fuquay-Varina, broke windows to get into the school at 109 N. Ennis St. on May 9, warrants say. A TV, guitar and microphones worth $2,000 were stolen.

The warrants say that Garrett also encouraged an 11-year-old and 13-year-old to help him in the break-ins.

Garrett was charged with felony breaking-and-entering, larceny after breaking-and-entering, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, misdemeanor larceny, injury to real property, misdemeanor possession of stolen goods and drug possession.

He was being in the Wake County jail Saturday under a $16,000 bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

Garrett was serving an 18-month probation sentence after being convicted of felony breaking-and-entering and felony possession of stolen goods on Feb. 4, according to state Department of Correction records.

    Hey folks, just so you know, the team alledgedly broke into many lockers with industrial strength tools and really tore up the middle school. Why did this not make bigger local news??? And on probation. If he is guilty, this will be a repeat that kills someone. Wake up judges!
