WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a reported break-in overnight at a convenience store on Carolina Beach Road.
According to New Hanover County Dispatch, an alarm system alerted authorities at Monkey Junction Pit Stop around 2 a.m. Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jerry Brewer says the suspect entered the store through the roof.
Brewer says deputies approached a man who fit the description of the suspect, and that man tried to fight with them they tried to talk with him. He is charged with resisting arrest. Investigators, though, say once they saw the store surveillance video, they realized he was not the man who broke in.
