Second suspect charged in connection to Winston-Salem home break-in
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A second suspect has been arrested in connection to an attempted murder and home break-in in Winston-Salem.
Larry Lineral Stevenson, 42, has been charged with felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering. Winston-Salem police said he surrendered himself to authorities on Friday morning.
Jefferey Stuart Sneed, 24, of Winston-Salem, was charged earlier this week with attempted murder, discharging a weapon into an occupied vehicle, felony breaking and entering, and larceny after breaking and entering.
Sneed was taken into custody at his home by Winston-Salem Police Department SWAT members without incident.
On Dec. 9, officers responded to 484 Stonegate Lane in Winston-Salem at 8:20 a.m. after receiving reports of a break-in.
The victim was returning home when she noticed the rear door to her house was open and damaged, according to a police report.
While she was sitting in her vehicle, a suspect approached the driver-side door from behind and pointed a handgun at her.
The suspect ordered the victim to get out of her vehicle and fired a shot that hit her left rear door.
When the victim began backing out of her vehicle, the suspect fired a second time, hitting her front windshield.
The victim backed into a tree as she was trying to escape so she got out of the vehicle and ran away from the home. As she was running away, the victim fell down, injuring her shoulder. She was later taken to Baptist Hospital for treatment.
A police K-9 track later led officers south into the Gordon Manor neighborhood where a witness reported seeing the two suspects running south toward Cliffdale Drive.
Sneed is being held in the Forsyth County Detention Center under a $500,000 secured bond. His court date is set for Jan. 9, 2016.
