RALEIGH, N.C. – Raleigh police have arrested a teenager accused of breaking into the same gun store twice this month and stealing a total of 34 firearms.
WTVD reported that 17-year-old Jvon Plas Sneed allegedly broke into the Eagle 1 Supply Store on Saturday morning and on May 11.
The suspect is accused of taking 15 weapons from the business on Craftsman Drive around 1 a.m. Saturday and 19 firearms two weeks earlier.
Officials said the suspect took off on foot but they were able to catch up with him shortly later.
The store owner said surveillance video of both burglaries shows Sneed wearing the same clothes and getting stuck inside the locked-down store for a while before police arrived.
Authorities said the suspect was charged with 34 counts of larceny of a firearm, two counts of breaking and entering, and misdemeanor larceny.
He also faces two counts of possession of firearm by felon, resisting public officer, and possession of burglary tools.
The suspect, a student at Enloe High School, was placed in the Wake County Jail.
