DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – The Durham County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday they arrested a person in connection with a Feb. 5 armed carjacking at an ATM in Research Triangle Park, a news release said.
On Thursday, authorities served a search warrant at a home located at 670 Troy St. in Durham. They found 36-year-old Kenneth Jerome Wiley, who had been developed as a person of interest in the case.
Surveillance video showed Wiley and another person pulling in front of a vehicle at the ATM at the Bank of America located at 2 Park Dr. in Research Triangle Park at about 10:42 p.m. on Feb. 5. The two men displayed firearms and demanded the person to get out of the vehicle, an earlier release said.
Authorities believe Wiley stole the victim’s vehicle. He faces federal charges of carjacking, carry and use of a firearm by brandishing during a crime of violence, and possession of a firearm by a felon, the release said.
Wiley made an appearance in federal court in Greensboro on Friday morning.
Anyone with information on the second person shown in the surveillance video of the carjacking is asked to call the Durham County Sheriff’s Office at 919-560-0880 or Durham Crimestoppers at 919-683-1200.
The sheriff’s office was assisted by the FBI’s Raleigh/Durham Safe Streets Task Force, the Durham Police Department, and the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicle License and Theft division.
