ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The last of four suspects wanted in connection with a series of burglaries in Asheville has been arrested, according to Sgt. Dave Romick with the Asheville Police Department.

On April 24, police responded to a breaking and entering in progress on Bryant Avenue in West Asheville.

Romick said officers were given a description of the suspect by people in the home.

After a short pursuit, 17-year-old Maliik Jackson was taken into custody, according to Romick.

Romick said detectives found evidence directly linking Jackson to four burglaries and an attempted arson that took place on Joyner Avenue earlier in the month.

On May 1, deputies arrested Michael Cody Cross, 18, in connection with the burglaries on Joyner Avenue, Romick said.

The third of the four suspects, 26-year-old Stanley Eddings, was taken into custody after deputies executed a search warrant on Stewart Street in West Asheville on Wednesday, Romick said.

According to Romick, during the search, items suspected to have been stolen from Joyner Avenue were seized.

On Friday, Romick said the fourth suspect, 17-year-old Carlos Nathan Pope, was arrested on multiple outstanding warrants for his role in the burglaries.

Cross has been charged with six counts of second-degree burglary, six counts of felony larceny, two counts of felony larceny of a firearm, and one count of damage to personal property.

Jackson has been charged with six counts of second-degree burglary, six counts of felony larceny, two counts of felony larceny of a firearm, two counts of misdemeanor damage to personal property and felony attempted second-degree arson.

Pope and Eddings have been charged with three counts of second-degree burglary and one count of larceny after breaking and entering.
