A 25-year-old man from Fuquay-Varina was charged Tuesday with breaking into a church in town in June and several other charges from Apex and Garner police involving stolen credit cards.
Jamara Ravon Spence of 808 Starfield Court was being held Wednesday in lieu of $200,000 bail at the Wake County Detention Center.
Fuquay-Varina police said Spence broke into St. Augusta Missionary Baptist Church and stole a $700 bass guitar on June 24, and they had obtained a warrant for his arrest in late July.
They also had an April warrant charging that he illegally had a gun last January.
Altogether, the three police departments charged Spence with 16 counts relating to the theft of credit cards from cars and using them to get or try to get merchandise.
In one case, Garner police said he pawned a stolen PlayStation 4 game console and tried to pawn a Nikon camera.
One charge from Apex police accused Spence of stealing two keys, worth $400 each, from a Mercedes-Benz.
Spence was put on the court calendar for an appearance Wednesday.
