Update on Recent Burglaries
Merry Christmas! I am proud to announce that the diligent efforts of the Operations Division headed by Captain Capps has made significant progress in our recent investigations. Over the last week, we were able to locate and identify the registered owner of the vehicle seen in this footage. The identity of the person operating the vehicle on the day of the crimes was later established through a series of attentive investigative efforts by Detectives Ayscue and Soto. Earlier today, the detectives apprehended and charged the suspect for his role in each of these burglaries. Kristopher Stallings of Raleigh, age 18, is currently being held in the Wake County Detention Center. Detectives are also actively pursuing Stallings’ known accomplices.
The arrest of a suspect often affords little solace to those affected by their crimes. We hope, however, that our swift apprehension of criminals is evidence of our commitment to serve you the best we can. As we continue our efforts to deter crime before it happens we encourage all of our community members to assist us by keeping a watchful eye, and reporting to us anything that seems suspicious or unusual. Please know that we will work diligently to pursue justice in those instances where crime cannot be averted. Again, remember to take reasonable measures in the coming weeks to ensure the safety and security of your holiday season. Don’t hesitate to call if we can be of service.
