Two held in $20,000 Morrisville coin theft

From staff reportsApril 23, 2013 

— Two men are accused of breaking into an armored car warehouse in Morrisville where one of them worked and taking $20,000 worth of coins Monday.

Police arrested John Early Haley, 21, and James Weldon Haley, 25, both of Bragg Street in Raleigh, Monday afternoon after questioning at police headquarters, according to an online arrest report.

Arrest warrants accuse James Haley, whose address is listed as 209 Bragg St., of felony larceny and embezzlement from the Loomis Fargo coin-handling facility at 251 Dominion Drive, saying he worked there and had been entrusted with receiving the coins.

John Haley, who is listed as living at 207 Bragg St., faces felony larceny and breaking and entering charges.

James Haley also is charged with two counts of breaking into the Loomis Fargo facility, once on March 28 and once on March 30.

There are no other charges for those dates in the warrants filed Monday, however.

Police said the case remains under investigation, and they declined to disclose other details.

It was not clear Tuesday if the Haleys are related or, if they are, in what way.

James Haley was being held on $50,000 bail and John Haley on $20,000 bail for court appearances Tuesday.
