WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man wanted for what police called a crime spree is in jail facing more than two dozen charges.
William Randolph Spencer is in the New Hanover County Jail under $228,600 bond. His 29 pending charges include several counts of larceny, as well as trespassing, failure to appear and failure to change his address as a sex offender.
Wilmington Police arrested Spencer Friday after a theft at the Kmart on South College Road. Some of his charges are for alleged crimes in Brunswick and Pender counties.
Southport Police asked for help earlier this month tracking down Spencer and another, unidentified man for stealing from Walmart. At the time, investigators said the men had been on what police called a spree of crimes and were wanted in connection with thefts in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.
