An alleged break-in that took place in eyesight of a deputy led to three people being arrested Sept. 3. 

Taylor Lauren Williamson, 27, of 5426 Pleasant Plains Church Rd., Whiteville, was charged with breaking and entering, and released on an unsecured bond. 

Debra Sealy, 59, of 293 Pine St., Cerro Gordo, was released on a $500 unsecured bond on a single charge of breaking and entering.

William Scott Sealy, 59, of 415 S. Wilson St., Chadbourn, was charged with resisting an officer and carrying a concealed weapon. His bond was set at $500 secured.

All three were arrested at a residence on Pleasant Plains Road, the sheriff’s office said. 

A deputy responded after a report of a disturbance with weapons, and made contact with the alleged victim, according to the report. Williamson and the Sealys were at the property at the same time. 

While the deputy was talking to the victim, the report said Williamson allegedly attempted to force her way into the home. William Scott Sealy then reportedly approached the victim. The deputy assisted all three suspects to their vehicles, according to the report.

The victim reported that Williamson and Debra Sealey had earlier forced their way into the residence.
