Six arrested in Chatham break-in ring
Posted December 29, 2011
Siler City, N.C. — Chatham County sheriff's deputies arrested six men last week who they believe have operated a break-in ring in the western part of the county.
Maj. Gary Blakenship said a long-term investigation revealed that the men conspired together to break into homes and businesses and then sell the stolen property.
Investigators made the following arrests:
- Joe Brady, 74, of 436 Greenhill Road in Siler City: charged with seven counts of felony conspiracy, six counts of receiving stolen property, one count of possession of stolen property; $10,000 secured bond
- Brian Everwine, 39, of 103 High Forty Road in Bennett: charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny and possession of stolen property
- Daniel Everwine, 44, of 99 Bradford Rodgers Lane in Siler City: charged with felony larceny and breaking and entering; $1,000 secured bond
- Joseph "Jody" Greene, 35, of 8108 Siler City-Glendon Road in Bear Creek: charged with five counts of felony larceny, two counts each of breaking and entering and felony conspiracy, and one count of possession of stolen property; $10,000 secured bond
- Phillip Mayo, 40, of 993 Piney Grove Church Road in Siler City: charged with four counts each of felony larceny, breaking and entering and conspiracy; $15,000 secured bond
- Royce Morgan, 32, of 8108 Siler City-Glendon Road in Bear Creek: felony larceny and breaking and entering; $2,500 secured bond
All six men were scheduled to appear in court Jan. 9.
At the time of his arrest, Brian Everwine was already incarcerated on a nearly 3-year sentence for seven break-in, burglary and larceny-related charges, according to state Department of Correction records. Those crimes occurred in June and July – a few months after his February release after serving nearly two years on a string of break-in convictions.
Morgan was also on probation for June break-ins in Chatham County, records state.
Five of the suspects – not including Brady – have been convicted of break-in, burglary or theft-related crimes in the past three years, according to DOC records.
