Sheriff: Robbers bury woman under furniture, loot Raeford home

Posted June 12, 2012

— A woman was held at gunpoint, tied up and buried under a pile of furniture earlier this month while robbers looted her Raeford home, stealing her truck and several phones, according to the Hoke County Sheriff's Office.

The victim, whose name was not released, was at her home, at 5746 Phillipi Church Road, when at least four people broke in on June 5. She told investigators the robbers were searching for and demanding specific items. 

She freed herself from the pile of furniture after she heard them leave, investigators said, and discovered that she no longer had any telephones in the house. She used her computer to contact a friend in New York, who called 911 on her behalf to report the robbery.

Over the course of the investigation, sheriff's deputies zeroed in on a suspect, Jabesh Clarence Corvin Reid, 20, and executed a search warrant at his Fayetteville home on Monday. The items seized during that search have not been released, but Reid was arrested there that same day. 

He faces first-degree kidnapping, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, larceny, aiding and abetting larceny and possession of stolen goods charges.

Reid was taken to the Hoke County jail, where he was being held Tuesday under a $500,000 secured bond.

Later Monday, deputies arrested three additional suspects in and around the Fayetteville area.

Jamilla Idalia Mancillas, 18, Darian Dion Hogan, 19, and Jesse James Horton, 22, all face the same charges as Reid. Their bonds were set at $600,000 each.

    Please do not put this crime in Raeford as it was in the county, were there is very little law enforcement, the officers in Raeford do a really great job under a great new Chief that knows what he is doing to keep crime down and care for the citizens, which is not true for the Hoke Sheriff, he is busy campaining for office and not looking after the community. The officers in Raeford care about their community.

    "Far more likely they would have taken her sixshooter from her, shot her guts out and used the sixshooter in even more brazen robberies." - piene2

    No, she probably would have shot and killed or seriously injured one, while the others would have run like rabbits.

    "Too bad she wasn't armed to protect herself, she'd still have her stuff and the courts wouldn't need to be bothered with such individuals as this.

    Far more likely they would have taken her sixshooter from her, shot her guts out and used the sixshooter in even more brazen robberies.

    They took specific items, but didn't take her computer. Very odd.
