— Police arrested a Raleigh man Saturday in a string of eight home break-ins since January, according to arrest warrants.

Nyshawn Tyron Haven, 18, was charged with eight counts of felony breaking and entering, eight counts of larceny and six counts of injury to real property, warrants state. He was also charged with one count each of felony possession of stolen goods and obtaining property by false pretense after investigators say he sold a stolen Nintendo Wii gaming console and two controllers to a pawn shop for cash.

Haven, of 5202-D Falls of Neuse Road, allegedly stole digital cameras, bicycles, cell phones, computers, iPods, clothing, jewelry, televisions, a BB gun and a Garmin GPS from eight Raleigh homes between Jan. 12 and June 7, warrants state.

Investigators estimated that the total of property stolen was valued at more than $17,000. 

Haven was taken to the Wake County jail and is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.
