Authorities have arrested the final suspect in connection to a pair of ATM heists at Walgreens stores in Pitt County.
According to Winterville Police, they worked with Greenville Police, Freemont Police and the Wilson County Sheriff's Offices to arrest 24-year-old Mark Allen Clark in Wilson County Thursday afternoon. He will be transported back to Pitt County.
Investigators said Clark is one of three men who broke into two Walgreens- one in Greenville and another in Winterville- on Sept. 12 and 13. Police said the suspects ripped out the ATMs inside the stores. They were able to open the machines and made off with $26,000, according to authorities.
Clark's girlfriend, Lindsay Saul, of Old Kenly Road in Pikeville, was arrested on Wednesday, investigators said. She has been charged with felony accessory after the fact and harboring fugitives. Saul was placed in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $200,000 bond.
Clark's brother, 28-year-old Shane Michael Clark, of Goldsboro, has also been arrested. Another suspect, 32-year-old Christopher Hoover, of Florida, was taken into custody by the Pitt County Sheriff's Office on Oct. 12.
Shane Michael Clark has been charged with safecracking, breaking and entering, larceny, injury to real property, fleeing and eluding arrest, possession of stolen goods, and resisting a public officer, among other charges.
Hoover faces multiple charges, including felony safecracking, felony flee/elude arrest with a motor vehicle, possession of stolen goods, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, larceny, injury to real property, breaking and entering, and possession of burglary tools.
Police have identified two more suspects in a pair of ATM heists at Walgreens stores in Pitt County.
According to Greenville Police, brothers Shane Michael Clark, 28, and Mark Alan Clark (above), 24, both of Goldsboro, were involved in the break-ins between Sept. 12 and 13.
Investigators said the suspects first smashed through the front door of the Walgreens at the corner of Greenville Boulevard and Evans Street in Greenville. They then dragged out the store's ATM before heading to another Walgreens at 4211 Highway 11 in Winterville, where they stole another ATM, said police. The suspects were able to open the machines and made off with $26,000, according to investigators.
The suspects also stole a pick-up truck from a Greenville car lot to make their escape, police said.
Shane Clark has been arrested, but his brother, Mark, is still at large, according to investigators. Anyone with information on the wanted suspect is asked to call Greenville Police at 252-329-4315 or Pitt-Greenville CrimeStoppers at 252-758-7777.
Also arrested for the break-ins is 32-year-old Christopher Earl Hoover, of Florida, who was booked into jail on Oct. 12.
All three suspects are facing charges of breaking and entering, larceny, felony safecracking, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
Shane Clark has at least 27 prior arrests dating back to 2003, said police. Meanwhile, Mark Clark has at least 25 prior arrests dating back to 2005.
A man identified as one of the suspects in two Pitt County ATM heists has been captured.
According to police, 32-year-old Christopher Hoover, of Florida, is in custody at the Pitt County Detention Center.
Hoover was booked on Saturday, October 12th. That's exactly a month after police say Hoover and his accomplice(s) allegedly broke into the Greenville Walgreens and ripped out the ATM. Police say the suspects then did the same thing at a Winterville Walgreens about an hour later, around 12:40 in the morning on the 13th (see video).
Authorities say Hoover was picked up on a fugitive warrant in Florida and transported back to Pitt County.
Hoover faces multiple charges including felony safecracking, felony flee/elude arrest with a motor vehicle, possession of stolen goods, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, larceny, injury to real property, breaking and entering and possession of burglary tools.
He is being held under $250,000 dollar secured bond.
