Zane Codi Reynolds, recently charged with exposing himself on the beach, was arrested again Wednesday after police say he broke into a Kitty Hawk home and got into a confrontation with a man who lives there.
Kitty Hawk police Detective Jeff Gard said officers were called to a home on Parker Street about 12:30 a.m. after the resident encountered a man with his face covered in a bandana coming out of a bedroom.
The intruder punched the victim, and a scuffle ensued, with the bandana coming off in the process. The burglar also had managed to steal $200 and an Apple watch in the break-in, Gard said.
The victim was able to identify Reynolds, who was arrested and charged with felony first-degree burglary and simple assault, Gard said. The two know each other and it’s believed Reynolds knew the victim would have some valuables in the house.
Reynolds latest arrest comes a few weeks after he was charged April 17 in connection with an indecent exposure on the beach near Lillian Street in Kitty Hawk.
In that case, a man was twice spotted near the dune line exposing himself and masturbating.
He was charged with indecent exposure, a misdemeanor, and not jailed.
In the burglary case, Reynolds is being held at the Dare County Adult Detention Center on $15,000 bond for the burglary charge and $5,000 bond for the assault charge, Gard said.
Reynolds has an extensive criminal history in Dare County, including larceny and burglary convictions. A hearing is scheduled for May 10 on the indecent exposure charge.
