KNIGHTDALE — A man accused of breaking into a Wake Forest home in early February was found and arrested by deputies last week.

Timothy James Crowe, 28, is facing a felony charge after he was arrested without incident just before 5:30 p.m. on March 25 in Knightdale, the Wake Forest Police Department said in a press release. He was arrested by deputies with the Wake County Sheriff’s Office. The Knightdale Police Department assisted.

The arrest happened near Crowe’s home on Lynnwood Estates Drive, according to sheriff’s office records.

He will be charged by Wake Forest police with felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering in connection to a Feb. 7 break-in of a home on Mountain Hill Drive. Police did not say what was stolen from that home or how the suspect gained entry.

Police in early March released home surveillance footage of a person of interest approaching that residence and asked the public to help identify the man. Shortly after, police issued warrants for Crowe’s arrest.

Sheriff’s office records also show Crowe has been charged with obtaining property by false pretense in connection to a Feb. 15 incident. He was held under a total $20,000 secured bond, according to arrest records.
