Richmond County deputies reportedly find meth on B&E suspect

HAMLET — A man is facing multiple charges after allegedly breaking into his mother’s home.

According to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a call of a possible break-in on Brandon Road, off of Battley Dairy Road, just south of Hamlet.

The victim reportedly told deputies that her son had to come to her home but she wouldn’t let him in — so he allegedly broke a window to try to gain entry.

The suspect, 25-year-old Bryan David Rosado-Montalban, was arrested and charged with second-degree trespassing, breaking and entering and injury to real property.

While being processed at the Richmond County Jail, deputies reportedly found an unspecified amount of suspected meth on his person and he was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance on jail premises.

(Note: The press release does not give a time element, but the defendant was booked at 4:19 a.m. June 21.)

Rosado-Montalban is being held on a combined $40,000 secured bond. Jail records show he is scheduled to appear in court July 14 on the drug charges and July 21 on the other charges.


Online court records show Rosado-Montalban has several pending charges including: two counts of second-degree trespassing and one count of resisting a public officer in district court; and going armed to the terror of the people, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance in superior court from 2021.

The next court appearance on the latter charges is slated for Aug. 8. The district court cases will be July 21.

Rosado-Montalban has no previous convictions in the state, according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
