— A 19-year-old man whom Raleigh police accused of breaking into 13 cars last year has been charged with breaking into a home, taking a $2,000 Nikon camera and selling it for $46.

Taheem Sedique Williams, who police say has no permanent address, was arrested Wednesday afternoon after questioning at police detective headquarters, according to an arrest report.

An arrest warrant charges that Williams broke into a home on Somerset Mill Lane on April 16.

Police accused him of taking a Nikon D-700 camera worth about $2,000 and selling it to a Capital Boulevard business for $46.

In September, police charged Williams with 13 counts of breaking or entering a motor vehicle, eight counts of misdemeanor larceny, two counts of felony larceny, one count of financial card fraud and a probation violation.

Williams was being held Thursday in lieu of $55,000 bail and was slated for a court appearance.
