Reward Offered For Teens Charged In Clayton Business Burglaries

A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrests of two teenagers wanted for breaking into Pittman’s Jewelers on East Main Street in Clayton on July 2, where $30,000 in merchandise was stolen. The suspects have also been linked by authorities to a second nearby burglary at Clayton Before & After Care, also on East Main Street . $645 in Playstations and Gameboys were stolen but later recovered, along with some of the stolen jewelry.

Clayton police detectives have obtained warrants for Daniel Clifton Freeman, 19, and Sean Kelly Porter, 18, who are being sought on breaking and entering and larceny charges at both businesses. The teens are also wanted by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office for obtaining property by false pretenses, for allegedly selling the stolen jewelry to a pawn shop in the Cleveland community. Freeman and Porter were last known to stay at an address on Ackerman Road near Garner. Anyone knowing their whereabouts is asked to contact the Clayton Police Department or their local 9-1-1 center.
