LAURINBURG — A 21-year-old Laurinburg man is back behind bars for allegedly breaking into a city home days after he was released from the Scotland County jail, according to the Laurinburg Police Department.
Michael Zhang, of 823 Old Lumberton Road, was arrested Tuesday for a break-in at a Jackson Street home, said Assistant Police Chief Cliff Sessoms.
Zhang is charged with felonious possession of stolen goods, fraud, misdemeanor breaking and entering and misdemeanor larceny after breaking and entering.
Because Zhang violated his probation, he is being held without bond, but a $2,000 bond was also assigned for an unrelated case in which Zhang took an iPhone and was charged with misdemeanor possession of stolen goods, Sessoms said.
Zhang was released from the Scotland County jail on June 10 on charges of second degree burglary, felonious breaking and entering, felonious breaking and entering into a motor vehicle, possession of burglary tools and resisting a police officer, according to jail records.
Soon after being released he broke into the Jackson Street home of Amenetta McNair and took electronics. On June 13 Zhang sold the items to a local pawn shop.
So far an XBox has been recovered.
