— Three men and a woman were charged Friday morning after authorities say they robbed a home in Wilson's Mills and assaulted a police officer who attempted to apprehend them.

The assault happened about 9:45 p.m. at 83 Hearth Lane, shortly after police officer Ashley McLamb responded to a call about a man with a gun. After arriving at the home, McLamb discovered that a robbery had taken place.

As he tried to apprehend the men, McLamb was assaulted. He was taken to WakeMed, and the sheriff's office said his injuries did not appear to life-threatening. 

Jesse Price, Dacarrus Staton and Afis Holt face multiple felony charges, including first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, four counts each of second-degree kidnapping, felony assault on a law enforcement official inflicting serious injury and felony conspiracy.

They each received a $450,000 bond. The woman, Victoria Shaver, was charged with felony conspiracy and received a $30,000 bond. Authorities said she was driving a car to assist in the robbery.

All four were being held in the Johnston County jail Friday morning and made their first court appearances Friday. They were given court-appointed attorneys, and hearings were scheduled for April 25 .

No other information was released.

    iamarmed - "i don't buy for one second she didn't know..."

    I hope you won't be on the jury then, because you've decided before all the facts are known.

    sunshine1040 - "I am one of many that grew up with the help of surplus food and welfare after my Father became disabled. He did not have more children after he became disabled by my brothers and sister all became productive citizens and worked and fed our families without free lunch ,food stamps housing assistances or EIC. The only one these young people have to blame are themselves Public education was available to all of them if they had wanted to get real jobs."

    You're absolutely right. It also helps the elderly and Veterans, and I wouldn't want it stopped for any reason, but I do think it needs better oversight. I also think the kinds of foods one can buy with food stamps needs better regulated so that sodas, cookies, chips, and similar foods that have little nutritive value but add to obesity can't be bought with them.

    After all, if they get obese and get an obesity-based illness or disease, then our tax dollars provide medical care via Medicaid for them.

    That's insane!!!

    wakemom/ Nowhere, in my earlier comment, did I say that the female was not a criminal. Read it again and think before commenting. Let me also say that I am thankful that the female isn't my daughter.

    the story with the three men and one woman being charged with burglary and so on: let me give yall some insight. The woman did take the men to the house that was robbed, without knowledge of the plan to rob it. once they got their she did in fact stay in the car and that is when the men decided to change the plan to steal from these people. (which is wrong and the men should be punished) after that was said and done they left and went back home. it wasnt until later that the cop injured, recognized the men at a convienent store and when he then tried to apprehend the men that is when the cop was struck. The woman wasnt even with them when the cop was injured, she didnt want any part of all this. She is just caught up in a very bad situation.

    True. And its a good thing all of that public assistance was available so you would have a chance. Certain people in Raleigh want to cut that out.
