— Fayetteville police said they arrested a 29-year-old man Tuesday morning on charges of breaking-and-entering for the third time in a month.

Officers were called out to a breaking-and-entering in progress at the Abbots Landing Apartments around 7 a.m. Tuesday, police said. Officers tracked down a car and two men matching descriptions given by witnesses.

Charges of felony conspiracy and attempted breaking-and-entering were filed against Terrell Lamont McIntyre, of 1435 Gairloch Drive, and Antonio Reginald McReynolds, 24, of 4420 Dudley Road in Hope Mills.

Both men were originally freed on separate $7,500 secured bonds after the arrests Tuesday.

At McIntyre's court appearance Wednesday, a judge granted a request from the District Attorney's Office to raise his bond to $25,000. If he makes that bond, he will be placed on pre-trial monitoring.

Police said they are investigating if the pair is responsible for other burglaries in the area.

Officers arrested McIntyre Nov. 6 after catching him at the scene of a break-in in the 5500 block of Faith Drive. He was released on bond shortly after being processed for charges of breaking-and-entering, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods.

On Oct. 25, Fayetteville police served McIntyre with outstanding warrants from Greenville on two counts each of breaking-and-entering, felony larceny and felony possession of stolen goods.

A charge of being a habitual felon is also pending against him, police said.

McIntyre has been imprisoned for 7 of the past 11 years and was most recently released in October 2008, according to state Department of Correction records. He has served time for armed robbery and common-law robbery, along with eight counts of second-degree burglary and four counts of felony breaking-and-entering, among other charges.

DOC records show that McReynolds has a history of possession of stolen goods and larceny charges in both North and South Carolina. He has also been convicted of hit-and-run and carrying a concealed weapon.
