— The suspect in a year-old slaying was caught thanks to a tipster, Durham police said Friday.

Terrance Devon Burney was arrested late Thursday in Butner on a charge of first-degree murder in the June 14, 2010, death of Christopher Pollard, 29. Pollard was found shot outside an apartment building on Dearborn Drive, where Burney used to live.

Police said that a Crime Stoppers tipster came forward during a two-day roundup of suspects this week and helped authorities locate Burney.

He was placed in the Granville County jail and denied bond.

Police arrested 184 people on 111 felony and 275 misdemeanor charge during the roundup Tuesday and Wednesday.
