— Clayton police arrested two men Monday in break-in and theft at Smithfield's Chicken 'n Barb-B-Q restaurant, 10414 U.S. Highway 70 Business West.

Police said that shortly after 7 a.m. on Aug. 11, two people forced their way in the drive-through window and pried open a small storage safe. They stole an undisclosed amount of cash and caused $700 worth of damage to the safe.

Afries Sandonicaes Maham, 25, of 11 Waddell Drive in Smithfield, and Dominique Demetris Slater, 21, of 126 Altavista Court in Clayton, both face felony charges of breaking-and-entering, larceny and safe-cracking.

Police said a similar break-in occurred at a Smithfield's restaurant in Smithfield on Aug. 6, but Maham and Slater have not been charged in it.

They were being held in the Johnston County Jail Tuesday under separate $50,000 bonds.

According to state Department of Correction records, both men are on probation, Slater for larceny and Maham for possession of a weapon of mass destruction.

DOC records show that Maham was convicted of assault by pointing a gun, assault on a female and misdemeanor breaking-and-entering in 2004. He was also convicted of four counts of damage to property and one count each of larceny from person and a drug violation in 2000. He received probation in both cases.

    It wasn't the chicken, it was the PORK SKINS. I love their greasy pork skins. I usually make myself sick eating them.

    What???? Probation for these offenses... No wonder criminals laugh at the system. He should have already been in jail.

    IknowIknow "Chicken will make people do that sort of thing."

    What other items might have been taken? A bottle of hot sauce? Maybe some sweet tea?

    Possession of a weapon of mass destruction?! What in the world did he have, and why was he walking around on the streets? Before it's over with, we're going to need to fence off entire states and use them as prisons, since there seems to be so many that would rather prey on someone else, than work a little.

    Well, it seems to me that they are 1 step away from murder and still not sure if that will keep them in prison. Only in America. We need to start chopping off fingers / hands......Oh no....Health Care. I probably would have to pay for that.

    LOSERS! Let's see what type of "soft" punishment is handed down this time

  • ladyinblue72 Sep 1, 2009

    On probation and still committing crime..imagine that? Send them to prison and see if that works, if not send them back at least we will know where they are and what they are doing. I don't care if you raise my taxes and build more prison, just don't make them nicer places to live than the houses of those of us who work for a living..

    Dohicky...we're protected by our law enforcement officers. It's the courts that let 'em go. If these guys don't get 20 years this time, it's a shame.
