The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office says two men were arrested, and one man is still at large after a string of break-ins and thefts.

The Sheriff’s Office says between January 11th and February 4th, 2014 they received several reports including vehicle break-ins, lawnmower thefts and an ATV theft in the River Road area of Washington.

During a follow-up investigation, investigators identified a suspect and vehicle used during the crimes. On February 10th, investigators with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office searched a property on Ormandsville Road in Ayden.

Two suspects were taken into custody after the search. Melvin Jermaine Edwards, 30, of Ayden, and Xavier Devon Hall, 21, of Snow Hill, were arrested and taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center.

An additional search of the residence on Ormandsville Rd. produced two lawnmowers stolen from Washington. Investigators say they were stealing the items in Washington between 3 and 5 a.m. while on a newspaper delivery route for a Greenville business. A delivery van was used to conceal and transport stolen lawn mowers and an ATV.

Edwards is charged with two counts of Felony Larceny, two counts of Misdemeanor Larceny, one count Breaking and Entering of a Motor Vehicle, one count of Unlawfully Obtaining a Financial Card, one count of Driving While License Revoked and one count of Identity Theft.

Hall is charged with one count of Felony Larceny. Edwards is in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $27,000 bond, Hall is under a $4,000 bond.  Additional charges are expected from Beaufort, Pitt and Greene Counties.

One man, Cornelius Tyrone Campbell, 21, of Ayden, is still at large. A warrant charges Campbell with two counts of Felony Larceny, two counts of Misdemeanor Larceny, one count of Breaking and Entering of a Motor Vehicle, and one count of Unlawfully Obtaining a Financial Card.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Campbell is asked to contact the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office at (252) 946-7111 or Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
