GOLDSBORO — Authorities say two Wilson County men were caught with burglary tools after running away from sheriff’s deputies who approached their car outside a Wayne County home Sunday.
Deputies were investigating a suspicious vehicle call and confronted 38-year-old Robbie Eddie Langley of 6048 Wiggins Mill Road outside Lucama and 37-year-old Phillip S. Bradshaw of 4252 U.S. 117, Wilson, when the men rain into a grassy field adjacent to the house, according to Lt. Michael Dawson of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
Langley and Bradshaw were apprehended in the field and had burglary tools in their possession, Dawson said. Deputies say they also found meth and marijuana in the car.
Each suspect is charged with felony possession of burglary tools. Langley faces additional charges of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine, possession of less than one-half ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Langley was booked into the Wayne County Detention Center under an $11,500 secured bond. Bradshaw was jailed under a $2,000 secured bond.
