Wake deputies charge two at Knightdale house after burglary call

From staff reportsDecember 27, 2012 

— Wake County sheriff’s deputies charged two men with breaking and entering Thursday when they found the pair at a house where a burglary had been reported.

When deputies got to 310 Woods Run, they found Evan Sinclair Matthews-Fenderson, 18, of 1205 Amber Stone Drive, and Devin Lee Lamont Hinton, 19, of 5709 Hatch St., both Knightdale addresses, the sheriff’s office said.

Spokeswoman Phyllis Stephens said the first deputies got to the house seven minutes after the call about a burglary in progress went out at 9:19 a.m.

A neighbor saw suspicious activity and called authorities, Stephens said.

“Thanks to that neighbor, we got there in time” and made two arrests, she added.

Both men were charged with breaking and entering, larceny after that offense and larceny of a firearm, all felonies. Hinton also was charged with injury to personal property and resisting an officer.

A deputy saw one man coming out of the back door of the house and arrested him, and a second arrest was made shortly afterward, officials said.

Matthews-Fenderson told deputies he is a cook at a restaurant.

Hinton identified himself as a student at East Wake High School.
