— Two Durham men and a woman wanted in connection with a Jan. 15 murder were among four people arrested after investigators found evidence of a break-in during a traffic stop.

The Durham County Sheriff's Office charged four people in connection to a break-in on Wake Forest Highway, according to a news release from the office. Deputies with the Wake County Sheriff's Office on Jan. 28 conducted a traffic stop and vehicle search that turned up evidence from the breaking and entering case.

Deputies then executed two search warrants at two different Durham homes that turned up electronics, guns, swords and several gaming systems, which were all reported stolen, the release said.

All four suspects were charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and larceny of a firearm, the release said. The suspects charged are:

– Raymond Delvalle, 19, of 4615 Blanchard Dr.

– Luis Garcia-Navarro, 21, of 800 Brye St.

– Reina Elizabeth Espana, 25, of 800 Brye St.

– Jesus Salgado-Briseno, 18, of 5218 Kerley Road.

Investigators previously charged Garcia-Navarro and Salgado-Briseno with the murder of 25-year-old Jose Giovanni Guillen Rodriguez, who police found shot on North Miami Boulevard on Jan. 15, according to a news release from the Durham Police Department. Espana was charged with accessory after the fact of murder for allegedly driving the men away from the scene.

    I wasn't getting angry, I just didn't understand the gaping hole in the story. It looks like the story has been revised since the original posting.

    ...because they weren't arrested on Jan. 15th. They were arrested in Wake County on 1/28, then charged, and then charged again with the breaking and entering charges.

    Before you get angry at people who are doing their job, you might want to consider this:
    The story left out one important detail: the three were already arrested on 1/28 and in custody in Wake County on unrelated charges. They were charged with the murder about that time, before they were charged with the breaking and entering, etc.

    Perhaps they had been charged at the earlier date but not yet apprehended?

    Excellent question.
    from the story: "Investigators previously charged Garcia-Navarro and Salgado-Briseno with the murder of 25-year-old Jose Giovanni Guillen Rodriguez, who police found shot on North Miami Boulevard on Jan. 15, according to a news release from the Durham Police Department. Espana was charged with accessory after the fact of murder for allegedly driving the men away from the scene."

    So Garcia-Navarro and Salgado-Briseno are the alleged shooters while Espana is the alleged driver.

    The eighth amendment to the United States Constitution notwithstanding, why were they back on the street in the first place? Someone should be held accountable.

    If two of them were arrested for murder n Jan. 15, why weren't they in jail??

    Great job for the Durham Police! Nab those crummy thieves and drag them to jail, where they belong! Murdering people and Stealing from folks who work for a living, they deserve big jail time. Glad they are off the streets!

    Where does it say they are not here legally?

    I guess they have come to the land of milk and honey to leech off of folks who work while they steal and kill. These are the ones who need deporting.
