On January 31, 2016, a Randolph County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to Shady Lawn Ct., Archdale, in reference to a burglary into a garage that had already occurred. The victim reported a dirt bike had been stolen from within. Crime Scene Investigations arrived to process the scene and collected evidence that was submitted to the NC Crime Lab for processing. At the time, there were no other leads in the case and it was therefore considered inactive.
In 2022, the Sheriff’s Office received a report from the NC Crime Lab that the evidence submitted had recently been matched to a DNA profile in Combined DNA Index System; the case was therefore reopened. On September 11, 2022, a Criminal Summons for Felony Breaking and or Entering, Felony Possession of Stolen Goods and Felony Larceny After Breaking/Entering was issued for Jacob Paul Church with an October 10, 2022, court date in Randolph County District Court. The Criminal Summons was served on September 11, 2022.
Name of Defendants:
