Fayetteville, N.C. — Cumberland County deputies were searching Tuesday for a person wanted in a home invasion southeast of Fayetteville.
Deputies responded to the 5600 block of Dudley Road at about 7:30 a.m. after receiving a 911 call about a home invasion. At least one person may have been targeted in the crime, investigators said.
The intruders fled the scene and became involved in a car chase with deputies and State Highway Patrol troopers. The chase ended on the east side of Cumberland County, as the men jumped from their getaway vehicle at various locations, authorities said.
Demario Teraze Johnson, 21, of 1309 Deep Creek Road in Fayetteville, Genodeaon Generall Barnett, 22, of 1600 Easterling Drive in Spring Lake, and Hakeem Anthony Middleton, 34, of 5002 Fieldcrest Drive in Fayetteville, were taken into custody.
Johnson, Barnett and Middleton face one count each of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering, second-degree kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a felon and attempted breaking and entering of a building.
Johnson and Middleton were also charged with one count each of assault on a female, larceny, possession of stolen goods and resisting a public officer. Barnett was also charged with fleeing to elude arrest.
Johnson was in the Cumberland County jail Wednesday under a $55,000 bond. Middleton, a registered sex offender, was being held on a $45,000 bond. Barnett was also in custody Wednesday being held on a $42,000 bond.
All three were scheduled to make their first court appearances Wednesday at 2 p.m.
