Garner man arrested in Raleigh on 10 new charges, parole violation

A Garner man was arrested in Raleigh Thursday by U.S. marshals and state parole officers on a string of criminal warrants and charged with violating a parole he began last year.

Maurice Byrd, 34, of 825 Delta St. in Garner was arrested at 604 E. Bragg St. Thursday afternoon, the U.S. Marshals Service said, after the Joint Fugitive Task Force got information about where to find Byrd.

Byrd had been released on parole in September 2013 after serving time following his February 2013 conviction on a felony charge of habitual misdemeanor assault, records show.

A magistrate ordered Byrd held without bail after officers served warrants charging him with assault inflicting serious bodily injury, two counts of misdemeanor breaking or entering, assault on a female, cyberstalking, communicating threats, misdemeanor stalking and three counts of injury to property.

Byrd also had served six years in prison from 2002 to 2008 and has several other criminal convictions.
