Police use stun gun on break-in suspect


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say they had to use a stun gun on a man accused of breaking into a drug store.

Just after 3 a.m. yesterday, police responded to a break-in at the CVS at 1929 Oleander Drive. They found a suspect still inside.

Police say they tried to get control of Charles Emery Foy, Jr., 51, among the shattered glass of the doors. They say Foy did not cooperate, even after several officers were on scene. Investigators say he would not show his hands for handcuffing once he was told he was under arrest. An officer used his Electronic Control Device, and police handcuffed Foy and took him into custody.

Foy is charged with breaking and entering and resist/delay/obstruct. He is jail under a $10,000 secure bond.

Foy has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1981 that includes multiple convictions for resisting arrest, assault on policeman, drunk and disorderly, DWI and larceny, according to the Department of Corrections website.
