— Two men were arrested Monday in connection with four home burglaries in the Leesville Road area of northwest Raleigh, authorities said Tuesday.

Omari Jevon Eubanks, 24, of 63 Pine Acres Road in Chapel Hill, and Carlos Lewis Fearrington, 18, of 1749 Dobbins Drive in Chapel Hill, were each charged with two counts of breaking and entering and larceny, two counts of breaking and entering, four counts of conspiracy to commit breaking and entering and one count each of possession of burglary tools and resisting an officer.

A homeowner called the Wake County Sheriff's Office on Monday afternoon to report that two men were trying to enter her home through a window. Deputies apprehended two men with the help of K-9 units and Raleigh police officers.

An investigation linked the men to three other break-ins on Monday, authorities said.

Eubanks and Fearrington were being held Tuesday in the Wake County jail under $100,000 bonds.
