A Winterville man has been charged with stalking and other offenses after he came to Havelock and allegedly broke into a shed on a woman’s property.
Randy Fomby, 53, is charged with felony breaking and entering, stalking, cyberstalking and careless and reckless driving.
Havelock Police Chief G. Wayne Cyrus said that a 40-year-old woman called police on Saturday to report that she was being stalked. Cyrus said that Fomby had been allegedly coming to the woman’s Havelock home after he had been told to stay away.
Fomby is alleged to have broken into a shed on the woman’s property and taken several items that were found in his vehicle, Cyrus said.
The chief said the two don’t have a relationship but that Fomby believes they do.
“He believes that she is his wife,” Cyrus said. “He identifies her as his wife. They are familiar with each other but there has never been a relationship that we know of.”
Cyrus said there had been no assault on the woman.
“His behavior has placed her in fear,” Cyrus said.
Fomby was taken before a magistrate and placed in the Craven County Detention Center at Clarks under a $5,500 bond and still remains in jail.
Cyrus said that Fomby is known to Havelock police because of an Oct. 9 incident at the police department.
“We had to bar him from the police department here,” Cyrus said. “He came into the lobby and displayed belligerent and aggressive behavior toward the communications staff.”
Fomby was issued a letter stating that if he returned to the department he would be charged with trespassing.
