Arrests made in string of Hatteras Island car break-ins

Posted: Updated:
CAPE HATTERAS, N.C. -

Three men have been arrested in connection to a string of car break-ins on Hatteras Island.

Friday, September 13, 2013, a Trooper with the North Carolina Highway Patrol initiated a vehicle stop on a moped in Buxton.  As a result of this stop, some suspicious credit cards were discovered. Following, a Dare Sheriff’s Sgt. began an investigation into the matter and determined that the cards came from a recently reported breaking and entering of a motor vehicle on Hatteras Island. 

Further investigation revealed that the moped that was pulled over by the Trooper was stolen from a recent break-in at a local business.  Other deputies joined the investigation and recovered some additional stolen property linking the two suspects to numerous motor vehicle break-ins on Hatteras Island. 

More charges will be brought when the evidence is sorted and identified.  Additionally, Dare CID was able pick up another suspect in the late-summer string of Hatteras Island vehicle break-ins on an outstanding probation warrant.  Further charges are likely here as well. 

As a result, Jamie Ray Holmes, 19, of Selma is charged with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle and Possessing a stolen motor vehicle.  He is in the Dare County Detention Center under a $100,000 bond.

Steven Anthony Nelson, 19, of Frisco is charged with breaking and entering of a motor vehicle and Possessing a stolen motor vehicle.  He is in the Dare County Detention Center under a $100,000 bond.

Richard William Taylor, 21, of Frisco, is charged with three outstanding probation violations, and is in the Dare County Detention Center under a $75,000 bond.
