DEPUTIES: Pitt County man goes on break-in spree all on same road

PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – A man who last year was arrested for breaking into a church is back in jail after deputies say he went on a break-in spree on just one road.

Pitt County deputies say Michael White is facing multiple charges for breaking into cars and the attempted break-in of a restaurant, all on Blackjack-Simpson Road.

In October 2023, WITN reported that the sheriff’s office charged him with breaking into a church on Old Tar Road outside of Winterville on September 28th. Pitt County deputies say several items inside Vision Caster Ministries were taken in the burglary.

Deputies say around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday they were called to Blackjack-Simpson Road for a vehicle break-in. Two and a half hours later they were called to the Bullseye Grill on Blackjack-Simpson Road for an attempted break-in. Then, a little over three hours later, they were called to another home on Blackjack-Simpson Road for another vehicle break-in.

Finally, around 11:00 a.m. that morning they went to another home on the same road for yet another vehicle break-in.

The 34-year-old White is charged with breaking or entering a motor vehicle, two counts of breaking or entering a motor vehicle with theft, and breaking or entering at a business.

He’s also been charged by probation officers with interfering with an electronic monitoring device and a probation violation.

White was nabbed Wednesday at a home on C&R Lane after deputies forced their way inside and arrested him.

He was given a $160,000 secured bond on all of the charges.
