UPDATE: 3 NC teens face additional charges after throwing rocks at cars on I-95

After authorities received several 911 calls in reference to rocks being thrown at cars on I-95 at the 65 mile marker overpass, deputies responded to Sherrill Baggett Road overpass and found a white BMW parked on the side of the road near a bridge. As deputies were searching the area, Bobby Shane Stone, 17, of Godwin, came out from under the bridge.

Stone was identified as the driver of the BMW and he told deputies two other people were under the bridge on the southbound side. When deputies looked under the bridge they found Javier Prieto Jr., 18, of Godwin, and Alex Alvarado, 18, of Dunn.

The sheriff’s office reported five victims with damaged vehicles on I-95 from the rocks thrown from the bridge.

  • Jerry Harrison of Ontana, South Carolina, had damage to the hood and windshield of his 2000 Freightliner truck.
  • William Myers of Columbia, South Carolina, had damage done to the windshield of his 2007 Freightliner truck.
  • Ismael Quintero of Sunrise Lake, Florida, had damage done to his 1995 International truck as well as the 2006 Chrysler 300 he was hauling.
  • Billy Lee of Fayetteville, North Carolina, had damage done to the sunroof and top of his 2003 Chevrolet Impala.
  • Frank Pope of Alexandria, Virginia, reported damage to the grill and roof of his 2015 Freightliner truck.

The three teens were taken into custody and booked into the Cumberland County Jail each on five felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and five counts of damage to personal property.

They are being held under $250,000 secured bond each.

The teens are scheduled to appear in court Feb. 3 at 2:30 p.m.
