Fifth Arrest Made In Connection With Wake County Home Invasion

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Wake County Sheriff's Office has arrested a fifth suspect in a recent Wake County home invasion.

Montray Jermaine McDuffie, taken into custody Tuesday night, was the last suspect being sought in connection to the March 9 crime. He is being held in the Wake County Jail on $600,000 secured bond.

"Thanks to a lot of hard work by our investigators and with the cooperation of the Harnett County Sheriff's Office, the Harnett County probation officers, the Coats Police Department and the Dunn Police Department, the victims can rest easy with all the suspects arrested and behind bars," said Wake County sheriff Donnie Harrison.

McDuffie's arrest came after Wake County investigator Jerry Winstead, acting on a tip that the suspect was in Harnett County, contacted Harnett County authorities.

The Dunn Police Department, along with a Harnett County probation officer, captured McDuffie without incident and turned himover to Wake County authorities.

McDuffie has been charged with two counts of second-degree kidnapping, one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of armed robbery and five counts of conspiracy.
