A Winston-Salem man has been arrested and charged with three crimes. He is, however, suspected in several property crime and burglary cases in Stokes County over the past few months. Romi Raheem White, 26, of 3112 Conover Drive, Winston-Salem, was taken into custody and was charged with three crimes: one count of Felony Breaking and Entering, one count of Felony Larceny after Break/Enter and one count of Felony Possession of Stolen Goods/Property.

The Stokes County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating these property/burglary crimes that have occured around Stokes County over the last two to four months. During their continuous investigation, the Criminal Investigative Division of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office finally pinpointed White, based on the evidence. They were assisted by the Winston-Salem Police Department when it came time for the suspect’s arrest. The drive to go find White began on Friday, Apr. 12, but it was early on the morning of Saturday, Apr. 13, that the law enforcement agents found and arrested him.

After his arrest, White was brought before a magistrate. His bond was set at $50,000 (secured), and White was taken to the Stokes County Jail. It was a victory for the Stokes County investigators who had been heavily investigating White.

As is often the case in investigative work, evidence found while White was being investigated resulted in other leads which could be significant. Some of this information is meaningful for law enforcement agencies outside of Stokes but in the Piedmont area.

Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall stated: “Our Investigative Division has worked long numerous hours which has now resulted in this arrest. The investigation is ongoing to hopefully tie in with other suspects and other break-ins. I would like to thank our citizens for the many phone calls and information provided that helped lead to this arrest, and we will continue to work together with our citizens to make this county as safe as we can.”
