Man held in Wake jail accrues 11 more car break-in charges

Bail for a man being held in the Wake County Detention Center neared three-quarters of a million dollars Monday after Raleigh police added charges of felony fleeing from officers who tried to stop a stolen car and breaking into or entering 11 cars.

Charges from several police departments have been piling up against Christopher Stephen Labrador, 22, since Raleigh police arrested him Feb. 4 on charges of breaking into a building, stealing a car and other counts.

Wake Forest police charged him after that with breaking into or entering 25 cars on Feb. 3 and stealing items from more than a dozen of them.

Garner police have since charged Labrador with attempting to rob a Bank of America branch on Benson Road a few hours before his arrest in Raleigh.

In the latest arrest warrants, Raleigh police said Labrador was driving a stolen 2011 Ford Taurus when he fled from officers who were trying to stop him in the 1000 block of Raleigh Boulevard on Feb. 3.

He also was charged Monday with breaking into or entering nine cars on Jan. 31, one of Feb. 1 and one on the day of the bank robbery and his arrest.

Wake County sheriff’s deputies charged him Feb. 9 with having illegal drugs in the jail, a felony.

Labrador, who was due to make a first appearance in court Tuesday on the latest charges, was being held on $767,000 bail.

Arrest records indicate that he has no permanent address.
