On the evening of December 14, a warehouse at 1240 South Dennis Street just outside of Enfield was broken into.

It was reported that a door to the warehouse had been forced open and several power tools valued at over $1,000 were stolen.

Jason Chatham Brickhouse, 46, of Wayne County, has been identified as the person who committed the burglary.

Brickhouse has an extensive criminal history dating back to 2002.

His history includes burglary, theft, forgery and other felony and misdemeanor convictions related to theft and fraud from Harnett, Sampson, Wake and Johnston counties.

He is actively wanted by Community Corrections as a fugitive from Wayne County for a 2018 conviction of burglary and immigration from Harnett County.
