Police: Man broke into car in front of Fayetteville officer

Posted October 31, 2011

— Police on Monday thanked a Fayetteville man for making their job easier, saying he broke into a car in a Walmart parking lot Sunday afternoon as an officer stood nearby.

Fayeteville police officers were in the parking lot of the Walmart on Ramsey Street at about 1 p.m. to investigate the theft of a vehicle. While they were there, one officer saw a man acting suspiciously near a Honda Accord, and the man then opened the passenger door and took some items from the car, police said.

The officer took the man into custody and also recovered property belonging to two other people, police said.

Kendrick Dion McArthur, 35, of Nottingham Drive, was charged with two counts each of felony breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods. He was being held in the Cumberland County jail under a $10,000 bond.

    Great job by the officers. I only hope the rest of the legal system does their job and puts this guy in jail.

    that is almost as bad as the guy who took a cab to rob a convenience store and when he ran out with the cash he hopped into what he thought was a cab only to find himself in the back seat of a police cruiser who was answering the silent alarm. Yup, time to get a new career.

    It was cold Sunday, I guess he figured 3 hot meals a day and a warm place to sleep was better than nothing. Either that or he belongs on Dumbest Crooks show. probably both.
