Cary police closed six burglary cases with charges against two men Wednesday, and one of them also was accused of breaking into the other’s home.

In arrest warrants served on the men at the Wake County Detention Center, where they were being held on second-degree burglary and other charges from a Dec. 20 arrest, police charged Taylor McCainn Miles, 27, of 131 Bonnell Court with seven counts of breaking and entering, seven counts of larceny after breaking in and one count of obtaining property by false pretense.

One of the break-ins alleged in the warrants against Miles was on Nov. 8 at the 137 Castlefern Drive home of Jeremiah Joseph Boutross.

Boutross was charged with the same six other break-ins and six larcenies as Miles.

Miles was accused of obtaining property by false pretense for selling a stolen bike at a Play It Again Sports store after the break-in at Boutross’ home.

According to the warrants, the break-ins began Oct. 3 with the theft of money, guns and a safe from a house down the street from Miles’ home.

The most recent was Dec. 18 on Laughridge Drive, the warrants stated.

In another twist in the case, Cary police had arrested a third man, Jordan William Jedlica, 26, of 200 Covington Square Drive in Cary at Boutross’ home on the afternoon of Dec. 20, the day they charged Boutross and Miles after questioning at police headquarters in the morning.

Jedlica was charged with one count each of breaking and entering and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Miles and Boutross were being held Thursday in lieu of total bails of $190,000 and $170,000, respectively, for court appearances on the new charges.
