New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Deputies have arrested a group of thieves for Breaking and Entering and Larceny.  Shortly after noon, Tuesday March 27, 2012, 911 communications received a call of larceny in progress.   The caller, the owner of a vacant home located at 7647 Carolina Beach Rd., stated that he stopped by the house because he noticed a vehicle at the residence.  Upon his arrival he discovered metal and copper missing from the residence and witnessed four men leaving the house. Three of the suspects left in a vehicle and one fled on foot into a wooded area.  Deputies quickly arrived on scene and detained William Daniel Watkins, a twenty four year old white male, hiding in the wooded area.  Additional Deputies noticed a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle located in Snows Cut Park.  Deputies made contact with the driver, Timothy Edward Watkins, a twenty two year old white male, who was detained for Detectives.
