Tarboro man gets 41 year sentence for Craigslist burglary, assault

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Tarboro man is going to prison for his role in a Craigslist burglary and assault.

26-year-old Jemond Dickens was sentenced Wednesday to 41 years in prison for the late December 2013 incident.

Deputies say Dickens and two others robbed and beat a 53-year-old man at his home in Bell Arthur. The three came over, answering an ad placed on Craigslist.

Deputies say they then tied him up, robbed him, and nearly beat him to death.

With the assistance of the Pinetops Police Department, warrants were issued on January 2 and he was arrested days later on January 8. 

Dickens has been in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $101,000 secured bond ever since.
