Two arrested near Middlesex for Possession of Stolen Motor Vehicle

Release Date/Time: 01/13/2017 12:00 PM
Incident: Possession of Stolen Motor Vehicle; Probation Violation; Juvenile Petition
Date/ Time: Wednesday, 01/11/2017 11:30 AM
Location: Talon Drive, Zebulon, NC

On Tuesday, January 11, 2017 at approximately 1130hrs, an alert neighbor called 911 to report two suspicious people, dressed in all black, walking around Harpy Dr in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood. Deputies quickly responded to the area and located a vehicle left parked on Talon Drive, which was reported stolen from Havelock, earlier that morning.
Deputies quickly determined that Lavette Hinton, who was being sought for a probation violation, had recently been living in Havelock with his mother. It was also determined that Mr. Hinton was accompanied by a 15 year old male juvenile. The investigation revealed the vehicle was parked near the home of a family friend to both subjects. That homeowner was contacted and the home was eventually searched, finding both Mr. Hinton and the juvenile inside, along with the family’s two children and an additional family friend.
Lavette Hinton was charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle and given a $15,000 secured bond. He was also served with his probation violation, and given an additional $35,000 secured bond. The male juvenile had a secure custody order out for him. He was taken to Wake Juvenile Detention Center, and he was served with a juvenile petition for possession of a stolen motor vehicle. Charges are pending for both subjects from Havelock Police Department.
This investigation was a result of a vigilant citizen. The Nash County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind the public to report any suspicious activities to (252) 459-1510 or 9-1-1 for emergencies.
