Officer falls through roof in attempt to arrest burglary suspects

LOUISBURG -- A Louisburg officer fell through a roof and injured his back making an arrest at a restaurant in town.

Officer Dylan Moore was recovering at WakeMed on Friday from a serious back and elbow injury sustained in the Thursday night incident.

According to Louisburg Police Chief Jason Abbott, a motorist notified authorities that it appeared suspects were entering the Carolina Chicken and BBQ restaurant through the roof.

Officers arrived at the Bickett Boulevard restaurant around 10 p.m. to locate one of the suspects outside.

Another suspect was still inside and after trying unsuccessfully to reach a manager for the key to the restaurant, officers attempted to enter the restaurant through the same hatch as the suspects.

Officers made their way to the roof and could see one of the suspects inside, but he refused police orders to come out.

That's when officers attempted to get inside and Moore fell through the roof, landing in the kitchen area on his back.

Abbott said Moore sustained significant injuries to both his back and elbow and was transported to WakeMed.

"He's going to have a lengthy recovery," Abbott said.

Officers were able to make an arrest, taking Antonio Javone Arrington, 49, of and Brian Keith Watson, 29, both of Louisburg, into custody.

They were both charged with felony breaking and entering and were each placed in jail in lieu of a $25,000 bond
