Police have charged a man with a November break-in during which $130,000 in cash, jewelry and multiple high-end watches were reported stolen from the house of one of his neighbors.
They went to the Wake County Detention Center to charge Barry Delane Egerton, 26, of 332 Steel Hopper Way with the Nov. 20 break-in and larceny at a house on Coal Yard Drive.
Egerton had been in custody since since February, when Raleigh police charged him with a motor-vehicle break-in. They had charged him earlier in the month with obtaining property on false pretenses at a Walmart on Glenwood Avenue.
In the arrest warrant that they served on Egerton on Monday, Garner police said a safe, cash, a necklace and several expensive watches had been taken.

A judge had placed Egerton on probation after an August 2013 conviction for armed robbery and a September 2014 conviction for breaking into motor vehicles.
With the new charge, Egerton’s bail stood at $60,000.
