— Officers on the ground and in the air searched Sunday for a man who escaped after he was detained on suspicion of breaking into cars near the intersection of Hilltop Needmore and Eden Grove roads in Fuquay-Varina.

Wake County deputies handcuffed Warren Riley Ray Jr., 26, just before 8 a.m. while they investigated a series of reported break-ins, but he ran from them and escaped.

Investigators said while Ray is not considered violent, he does have a criminal history that includes probation violations.
