Raleigh man charged in string of break-ins

Posted June 26, 2011

— Police arrested a Raleigh man Saturday in a string of eight home break-ins since January, according to arrest warrants.

Nyshawn Tyron Haven, 18, was charged with eight counts of felony breaking and entering, eight counts of larceny and six counts of injury to real property, warrants state. He was also charged with one count each of felony possession of stolen goods and obtaining property by false pretense after investigators say he sold a stolen Nintendo Wii gaming console and two controllers to a pawn shop for cash.

Haven, of 5202-D Falls of Neuse Road, allegedly stole digital cameras, bicycles, cell phones, computers, iPods, clothing, jewelry, televisions, a BB gun and a Garmin GPS from eight Raleigh homes between Jan. 12 and June 7, warrants state.

Investigators estimated that the total of property stolen was valued at more than $17,000. 

Haven was taken to the Wake County jail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.

    Maybe someone should break into his house while he's lock away in jail and take some of his things.

    Hey, maybe I'll get my camera back. Or at least the thousands of pictures this person stole from me.

    This more than likely is the "FOOL"that broke into my house while I was at "WORK" earning a living. I hope he's put away for the rest of his sorry life. Let's seat back and see what the court system will do.

    at that age,a stint on the chain gang would stop his career

    Yep he'll be in prison so he can hone his skills. We need to take people like him and put them to work so they understand the value of obtaining material wealth and what it is like to have it taken by someone too lazy to earn it. Put him on a prison farm, grow his own food.

    I wonder what kind of an uproar it would cause for the US to purchase a large island in the middle of no where and put all of our criminals there...it could be Australia #2. Hey they may make it a nice new country.

    He will get double secret probation or if he does not plead the DA will dismiss the charge. I bet if you looked at his record you would be amazed at all of the dismissals.Never the less he will be out in a short time doing the same crimes.

    Coming soon to a neighborhood near you, the criminal justice system has a history of not holding onto offenders like this.

  • simplemind2 Jun 27, 2011

    Unfortunately for this kind of career criminal, lock him up won't do it. As soon as he gets out of prison due to jail-overcrowding or else, guess what - he'll repeat his old profession and maybe that time, he'll upgrade himself to commit even more serious crimes. He's just a rotten fruit needs to be disposed off ASAP.

    All that stealing is waaaaaaay harder than getting a real job.
