— Two men who may be connected to dozens of Wake County break-ins are behind bars.

Police believe suspects Shon McClain and Curtis Baker are involved in the convenience store "smash and grab" incidents. In the past year, there have been dozens of similar robberies in Wake County, said officials.

"Certain days were standing out and certain times," said Wake County Lt. Walt Martin, "There was a pattern in what they did."

The two men stole Newport cigarettes, Budweiser beer and Wild Irish Rose liquor, according to officers.
