Johnathan Andrews

One man has been arrested and charged in connection to two breaking and entering cases involving commercial businesses in Bladen County.

Jonathan Adam Andrews, 27, of 2890 Center Road, Bladenboro, was arrested and charged in two different breaking and entering cases. The first breaking and entering occurred at the K&I Grocery in White Oak on Saturday, Dec. 12, and the second breaking and entering occurred at the Marathon Gas Station in Tar Heel on Sunday, Dec. 13, according to Bladen County Sheriff Jim McVicker.

Andrews is charged with two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of larceny after breaking and entering, two counts of possession of burglary tools, one count of injury to personal property and one count of injury to real property. He is currently in Bladen County Jail under a $250,000 secured bond.

McVicker added that Andrews is also a suspect in other similar break-ins that have occurred in Bladen County in the past month.

Andrews was arrested and charged for breaking into a power substation in Columbus County that occurred this past weekend, according to McVicker.

“This man is a suspect in several other crimes we are actively investigating,” said McVicker. “We expect additional charges in the near future.”
