Posted August 12, 2008

— Law enforcement officials are conducting a manhunt in the Riverbend Community in Moore County on Tuesday for a suspect charged with common law robbery and felony fleeing to elude arrest, according to the Moore County Sheriff's Office.

Eric Wayne Callihan, 27, of 64 Saddleview Lane in Cameron, was also charged with larceny of a motor vehicle. He is suspected in a series of breaking, entering and larceny cases in the area.

Callihan was charged in April with six counts of felony breaking and entering, seven counts of felony larceny and seven counts of felony possession of stolen goods, three counts of attempted felony breaking and entering, one count of larceny of a firearm, one count of possession of a stolen firearm and one count of possession of a stolen motor vehicle.

Callihan, described as about 5-foot-7 and 200 pounds, was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt and blue jeans on Tuesday. Authorities said he has short, brown hair and blue eyes.

Authorities said Callihan should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information concerning the location of Callahan should call the Moore County Sheriff’s Office at 910-947-2931 or their local law enforcement agency.

    The judge that keeps letting this man out on bond should be known. Callihan has robbed business, stolen vehicles, and also robbed individuals. He should be charged as a habitual felon. He was on house arrest, he broke that and stole a vehicle, and they still let him back on the street. What is it gonna take to lock this guy up? An innocent person being killed? If that innocent person is killed, I think the judge that keeps letting him out, should be charged with the murder as well. I also think that judges name should be made public, because it is apparent that he is not serving the people of Moore County as he was elected to do. I also think he has been in jail in Harnett County as well and they let him out. Come on, where is the probation officer in this case? I also feel the people I help pay to protect me and my family in Harnett Co have let me down. Today is the first that has been told that he is on the loose, and they have been searching all week. Armed & dangerous!!
