Three charged in Garner home invasion

Posted December 2, 2010

— Garner police arrested three men Wednesday in connection with a home invasion involving a 10-year-old boy. One of the suspects worked for the boy's father.

Police said that two men broke into a home home on Springview Trail around 10:20 a.m. on Nov. 30 and encountered the boy, who was home from school. He was not harmed.

The men left with undisclosed property and were seen by witnesses getting into a vehicle.

Police said that one of the buglars – Ermelando Rogel-Diaz, 32, of 206 Avery St. – worked at a local restaurant owned by the homeowner.

Rogel-Diaz was charged with breaking and entering, larceny and conspiracy to commit breaking and entering.

Fernando Segura Garduno, 36, and Joaquin Morales 22, both of 154 Dakota Way, were charged with second-degree kidnapping, breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit breaking and entering.

All three men were being held at the Wake County jail Thursday.

    I wonder how many times these three criminals have been deported? And more importantly, will they even get any time for this?

    Thank God they didn't hurt the little boy like that other case where the one burglar beat the child to death when he found him at home.

    where does the article say he was home alone? sure it implies this, but just because the article doesn't go on to state that there were other people in the home who were not encountered when these crooks broke in doesn't mean the kid was home alone...

    The 10 yr old could be tracked out of a year round school.

    WRAL...I am starting to believe that you are a whole bunch of racist pigs and a bunch of hypocrites over there. You have these guidelines as to what is inappropriate to post. However, you allow people to personally attack others, use negative language, make fun of others, just to name a few. I have tried to make several posts that are not even offensive and they are censored. Now my question to you is why? Is it because I have a Spanish surname and you are assuming I am an illegal? Because according to all the other posters, anybody with a Spanish name is illegal and can’t speak English. So you post that type of comment that is offensive to say the least and can’t post mine? You post a comment that says “Imagine, three people who appear to be from south of the border, committing a crime. Whooda thunk it?” So all people from south of the border are criminals? I am not even of Mexican descent and I take offense to that. I am so sick and tired of all the generalizations

    I have CPI Security and those of you who do not have it better get it because more of this will be happening now that so many people lost their unemployment benefits. They will be breaking into your homes and stealing the presents, eating your food, sleeping in your bed, and making big messes in the kitchen!
