Men charged in Halifax break-ins, theft of dog, gun

Posted March 10, 2011

— Two Rocky Mount men face charges in connection with three home break-ins in Halifax County Wednesday in which a dog and a gun were stolen, according to the sheriff's office.

Lt. B.L. Martin said that residents reported three home break-ins in the South Brown Road area of Enfield. Shortly thereafter, deputies stopped a car that matched the description given by a witness.

Martin said deputies found stolen property linked to the break-ins in the car and arrested its two occupants.

Rodrick Hill, 22, and Anthony Hendricks, 21, face three counts each of breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering, two counts of injury to personal property, and one count each of possession of stolen goods and larceny of a dog.

Hill was also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, and Hendricks with possession of a stolen firearm.

Hill was granted a $70,000 bond, and Hendricks a $50,000 bond. They are both scheduled to appear in court on March 30.

State Department of Correction records show that Hill has been convicted twice of felony breaking and entering, along with larceny and identity theft, since 2008. He served nearly 1½ years in jail and was released last October.

    It should be a capital crime to steal a persons dog...

    I wonder if their I.Q were added together would they reach room temperature?

  • Scubagirl Mar 10, 2011

    I was wondering about the outcome of the dog as well.

    There is a serious problem in that community.

    Amen to you, Mulecity. Anyone touches my pets in a way that is unfitting for me, there will be pain involved.

    And does anyone else think the picture of number #1 suspect looks a bit off?

    And lastly, as we are talking about pets, I have tried to post a picture of my baby boy cat who died a year ago on this site and apparently WRAL won't publish it. Fine, I will post my picture of my baby boy somewhere else to pay tribute to him. (Watch WRAL won't even put my post on here)

    "Lets still Spot the family dog" Cause we're desperate and despicable"

    Did the owners get their dog back?!

    Mulecitybabe - I'm right there with you!

    These 2 gentleman seem to follow an all too familiar pattern if you follow the news daily - they need to have a permanent address in the state pen, but we all know our justice system will soon let them out so they can commit more crimes (great job LEO in catching them!). And they are heartless if they would steal a family pet as they did!

    If somebody steals one of my pets, the headline will be much different. My pets are worth more to me than a million of this criminal.
