Rooftop burglars nabbed but officer injured in fall
Rickey Arrington

LOUISBURG -- Two suspects that police allege broke into a Louisburg eatery -- causing one officer to fall through a roof in an attempt to apprehend them -- are slated to appear in court next month.

Ricky Arrington, 50, and Brian Keith Watson, 29, were both charged with felony breaking and entering after officers arrested them the evening of Nov. 9, alleging they broke into Carolina Chicken and Barbecue.

The officer, Dylan Moore, is recovering from what were described to be significant back and elbow injuries sustained in the fall.

According to Louisburg Police Chief Jason Abbott, a motorist notified authorities that it appeared suspects were entering the Bickett Boulevard restaurant through the roof.

Officers arrived at the restaurant around 10 p.m. to locate one of the suspects, Watson, outside.

Arrington was still inside.

After trying unsuccessfully to reach a manager for the key to the restaurant, officers attempted to enter the restaurant through the same hatch as the suspects.

Officers made their way to the roof and could see one of the suspects, later identified as Arrington, inside, but he refused police orders to come out.

That's when officers attempted to get inside and Moore fell through the roof, landing in the kitchen area on his back.

Abbott said Moore sustained significant injuries to both his back and elbow and was transported to WakeMed.

"He's going to have a lengthy recovery," Abbott said.

Both men were placed in jail in lieu of a $25,000 bond and are slated to appear in Franklin County District Court on Dec. 11.
