A 52-year-old Dublin man faces several charges related to two recent break-ins in the Hyco community, according to Halifax County Sheriff Fred S. Clark.
Larry James Hoback faces two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of grand larceny, one count of possession of methamphetamine, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of possession of methamphetamine while simultaneously possessing a firearm and two counts of entering property for the purpose of damaging it.
Clark said on Feb. 14 deputies and investigators responded to a residence on Lowery Road to speak with an individual about the break-ins.
Upon arrival, deputy C. S. Hudson made contact with an individual who was later identified as Hoback, said Clark.
It was then found that Hoback had outstanding warrants from Pulaski County for suspended sentence violations, and he was arrested and taken to Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Halifax.
The sheriff said during the investigation they realized possible stolen items were in the residence, and a search was conducted and numerous items were located.
Deputies and investigators seized suspected stolen firearms, jewelry, novelties, heirlooms and personal documents.
Suspected methamphetamine and suspected marijuana also was seized.
Clark said items seized matched items stolen from at least two recent break-ins in the Hyco community as well as items stolen from other jurisdictions.
On Tuesday, Hudson obtained warrants for Hoback in connection to the two recent break-ins, and deputy J. S. Garber served the warrants the same day.
Hoback is currently being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Halifax with no bond.
