Two charged with breaking and entering

Nevin Devon Wilder Tyrese Jamale Stiller

Deputies apprehended suspects in a break-in Wednesday when they responded to a 911 call. The Rowan County Sheriff’s office was alerted to a possible break-in in progress Wednesday afternoon at the 100 block of Hawkins Loop.

A caller told 911 that a window on her home had been broken open and the screen torn off, and witnesses said that two young men were seen running into some woods near the house. They told 911 that one of the men was wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants, and the other was wearing shorts and a black sweatshirt.

Deputies used a K-9 unit to track the men, and patrolled the area. While driving through the neighborhood deputies saw someone who matched the description of one of the suspects, a Nevin Devon Wilder, 16, and got out to talk to him. The K-9 arrived a short time later, and Wilder was transported to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies located the second suspect, Tyrese Jamale Stiller, 16, and took him to the Sheriff’s Office.

As deputies continued their investigation at the Hawkins Loop home, they discovered a blue and black backpack that contained papers with Wilder’s name on them.

Wilder and Stiller were charged with felony breaking and entering and injury to real property. They have been placed in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $2,500 secured bond.
