A Robeson County man faces a charge in Wake County that he broke into offices used by the state agency whose job is to keep people from getting out of places where courts have sent them.
State Capitol Police arrested Ryan Christopher Ivey, 33, at WakeMed Raleigh Hospital on Thursday afternoon after he had been taken there for a medical evaluation. They accused him of breaking and entering at the state Division of Adult Corrections’ probation and parole headquarters at 2020 Yonkers Road.
Capitol police said they and Raleigh police were able to identify Ivey from security-camera footage that showed him kicking in glass in the doors to the building’s reception area about 3:30 a.m. Thursday.
After Ivey entered, police said, he pulled a fire alarm. They said they did not know why.

In addition to the charge from Capitol police, Ivey was served with warrants for failure to appear in court on larceny and assault charges in Gaston County and driving with a revoked license in Robeson County.
Ivey remained in jail Saturday, with bail set at $9,000. He had a court appearance Friday and is scheduled for another on April 16.
