FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Four people are accused of entering a Forsyth County home, threatening the resident at gunpoint and stealing from her.
Lowell Thomas Manring, II, 28 of Winston-Salem; Leah Anne West, 23, of Winston-Salem; Tiffany Ranae Hicks, 19, of Winston-Salem and Maranda Elizabeth Bowles, 18, of Walkertown, all face charges.
The suspects are accused of entering a home in the 6000 block of Brussels Court in Walkertown around 3 a.m. Friday. Deputies said they entered by deceiving the resident, saying they were the victim’s relatives.
The male suspect is accused of holding the female victim down and threatening her with a gun. The other suspects allegedly stole unspecified things from the home.
Forsyth County deputies said the suspects fled in a gray SUV and were later found at a home Manring and West lived at. All the suspects were there and so was some of the stolen property, according to deputies.
They were all placed in the Forsyth County Detention Center, with Manring and West being held under no bond, while Hicks and Bowles were each given $75,000 secured bonds.
West was also served with five additional orders for arrest for failure to appear and a probation violation for absconding. A preliminary hearing for all the suspects is planned for July 3.
