The Caswell County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest related to a breaking and entering incident last week. 

Caswell deputies responded to the report of a breaking and entering in progress at a local business located on Rock Quarry Road in Pelham. Upon arriving, the deputies entered the business in attempts to locate the suspect. Deputies didn’t find anyone in the building but a lead from a concerned citizen informed deputies the suspect was standing in front of the Old Dutch Store located on West Main Street in Danville. 

The Caswell County Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant charging 29-year-old Danville resident Erik Chavez with one count of felonious breaking and/or entering. The Danville Police Department arrested and charged Chavez as a North Carolina fugitive. He is currently being held in the Danville City Jail, awaiting extradition back to North Carolina.
