WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police have arrested a Charlotte man wanted in connection to a theft at a Wilmington storage facility.

Sometime between January 12 and 13, during the night, someone entered the SecurCare Self Storage on Market Street, breaking into 33 units and stealing property from most of them.

Detectives were able to pursue several leads and secured arrest warrants for Jeffrey Roberts, 34, from Charlotte.

On Thursday, the US Marshall’s Service out of Charlotte was able to track Roberts down and place him under arrest. Roberts was served with approximately 55 warrants covering 88 charges, including numerous breaking and entering and larceny charges.

He is currently in the Mecklenberg County jail under a $540,000 secure bond.

    This is the same punk who went and stole a check from my check book and forged for $600.00, glad to see he’s finally caught!!!

    I’m having a whale of time trying to understand why full-time criminals like this are continually allowed to freely travel about in society. I suppose I can understand getting let-off for a crime or two, but look at this:
    This criminal has TWENTY FOUR felony convictions ranging from larceny, B&E, car theft, cheat, receiving stolen property, etc.
    This criminal has an additional FIVE misdemeanor convictions.
    All of this began in 1996 when he was only 18 years old and he’s been hard at it ever since.

    Our legal system needs help in a bad way!!! There simply is no excuse for this!

    Secure Care Self Storage might need to change to the Not so Secure Care Self Storage.
