ROCKY MOUNT — City police are using recent arrests to remind folks to lock up their cars.

“The Rocky Mount Police Department encourages citizens to ensure their vehicles are locked and valuables are out of plain sight,” police public information officer Cpl. Ricky Jackson said in a Tuesday news release.

At 11:45 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to a citizen call of suspicious people on bicycles pulling on car door handles in the 700 block of Piedmont Avenue, Jackson said.

Police observed two subjects near a vehicle. They fled the scene upon seeing officers.

Tyrell Tucker, 18, and a juvenile were later apprehended and interviewed by criminal investigators, which led to the following charges for both suspects:

• Three counts of breaking and entering of a motor vehicle. Police say the cars were unsecured.

• Two counts of attempted breaking and entering of a a motor vehicle. Those cars were locked, authorities said.

• One count of larceny after breaking and entering of an unsecured vehicle.

Tucker received a $15,000 secured bond and was turned over to the Nash County Detention Center.

The suspect younger than 18 was charged and released on a juvenile petition. Under state law, juvenile defendants’ identities are not publicly disclosed.
