According to investigators, Steven Lee Nicholas Dawkins, of 7628 Dome Road, Hope Mills, and Steven Nicolas Taylor, of 3632 Shem Creek Drive, Fayetteville, have taken property from nearly a dozen homes.

    these two look so smug...probably proud of breaking into houses where nobody will do anything to them...I say, let them break into a biker's house, or into a Marine's house...they wouldn't look so smug then....they know that in Cumberland County, nothing is going to happen to them...especially if they get Judge "Soft on crime" Ammons
