FUQUAY-VARINA — Three youths who face numerous felony charges stemming from a streak of car break-ins in three towns have been accused of first-degree burglary for a middle-of-the-night break-in at a woman's home.
In arrest warrants charging Deerik Hysheim Walton, 17, Daquan Shimek Smith, 16, and Daquan Rasheed Lee Hinton, 16, police said the trio had broken into a Ginwood Court home between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 29 while the resident was home.
The three intended to commit larceny, the warrants stated.
All three have been charged by police in Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Apex in connection with a string of break-ins at cars in neighborhoods.
Most of the cars had been left unlocked, police said, but state law considers entering an unlocked car to be the same as literally breaking into it.
All three are students at Fuquay-Varina High School.
The three are due in court again on Dec. 23 on the earlier warrants: Hinton on 35, Smith on 32 and Walton on 12.
