— The Wake County Sheriff's Office on Thursday identified three men charged in connection with a Wendell home invasion and robbery on Wednesday that prompted several eastern Wake County schools to go on lockdown while authorities searched for them.

Marcus Terrel Edrington, of 1320 Bristoe Drive, Apt. 207, Knightdale, Iran Antonio Marcano, of 9700 Cypress Farm Drive, Zebulon, and Ethan Jeffery Tyler Huff, of 404 Enid Place, Garner, were arrested on numerous charges following the alleged crimes at a home on Fox Run Drive.

During their first court appearance Thursday afternoon, prosecutors said that investigators believe Huff was the getaway driver and that investigators are also looking for a fourth suspect in the case who also has the last name Marcano.

Iran Marcano's mother, Olga Matos, said authorities are looking for his brother.

Edrington and Marcano each face charges of second-degree kidnapping, felony breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Edrington also faces a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, while Marcano faces an additional charge of second-degree trespassing.

Huff was charged with accessory after the fact to robbery with a dangerous weapon and resisting a law enforcement officer.

Edrington and Marcano were each in the Wake County jail Thursday afternoon under a $500,000 bond. Huff was jailed under a $150,000 bond.

Eight schools in Wendell and Knightdale were put on a precautionary lockdown Wednesday morning following the home invasion.

    Have they established if the parties knew each other? Was it gang related? Any bets that we won't hear much else?
