Cary police accuse man of 7 home break-ins in 2-week period

Police have charged a man with seven home break-ins in two weeks last October, including one in which three handguns were stolen.

Arrest warrants filed Friday accused Mohammed Nasser Jilani, 23, of 409 Normandy Court in town with seven counts of felony breaking-and-entering and six counts of larceny after a break-in.

Police charged that in one of the thefts, at a home on Glen Bonnie Lane, Jilani took a .357 Magnum revolver and .22-caliber and 9mm semiautomatic pistols.

All the break-ins happened between Oct. 14 and Oct. 28, the warrants charge. Jewelry and computer gear were among the other items taken in the break-ins, the warrants stated.

Jilani was in custody at the Wake County Detention Center when police charged him. He had been arrested in Cary on Dec. 12 on charges of firearm possession by a felon and possession of a stolen gun and marijuana possession.

Jilani was scheduled to appear before a judge Tuesday on the new charges, and the court calendar shows that he already was scheduled for a Thursday appearance on the earlier accusations.

He was being held in lieu of $202,000 bail, with $50,000 of that stemming from the latest charges.
