A Cumberland County teen surrendered to sheriff's deputies Monday for the role he allegedly played in multiple home break-ins.Jabesh Clarence Reid, 17, of Hope Mills was wanted for crimes in Cumberland County.

Detectives said they had made several failed attempts to talk with Reid's parent about the teen's surrender.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said the teen is one of four suspects and those suspects have been arrested on various charges stemming from breaking into homes. The group allegedly targeted homes in southeastern Cumberland County, stealing electronics, televisions and jewelry.

Reid is charged with multiple counts of breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and conspiracy.

Detectives also say Reid is an admitted gang member, who is also known as "Jay-Rock." He is being held under an $11,000 bond, but will be allowed to sign himself out of jail and be released to the custody of his parents.

Reid is expected to make a first court appearance on Tuesday, August 4.
