— A Wake Forest man has been charged in at least four vehicle break-ins throughout the town, according to an arrest warrant.

James Thomas Jackson, 36, faces four counts each of breaking and entering a motor vehicle and misdemeanor larceny and one count of resisting a public officer.

The vehicle break-ins occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the stolen items included cash, a wallet, purse, make-up bag and Stanley multi-tool, the warrant states.

Wake Forest police said that additional charges against Thomas are pending.

State Department of Correction records show that Thomas has a criminal record dating to 1994 and multiple convictions for larceny and breaking and entering. He was most recently released from jail in March after serving about four months for twice violating a protective order.

    From the looks of his past record, he will be out in 5 months only to do this again and again.

    The judges wont start doing the right thing until we start getting mad and not allowing this mess anymore, and voting the ones out that we can vote out.

    I hate to pay to house people like this, that's why the prison needs to go back to prison work camps, get s return on the expense of housing these crooks....

    Let's get this straight. "He was recently RELEASED for TWICE violating a protective order." IF I'm not mistaken that's how women are beat and murdered, because the lame judges let them go free.
