ROCKINGHAM — Three people are facing charges after allegedly leading law enforcement on a chase to the state line in a stolen car.


Officers with the Rockingham Police Department responded to a home on Leak Street just before 12:30 a.m. Tuesday regarding a stolen vehicle, investigators say.

According to an incident report, the victim said he left his mother’s car running at the intersection of Glenwood and Leak streets while he ran into a friend’s house. When he came back out, the Kia Forte was gone.

Police say officers spotted the vehicle a short time later and tried to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver refused, resulting in a chase through Rockingham and Hamlet around 1 a.m. with sirens blaring.

At least one police vehicle ran over stop spikes before the stolen vehicle was stopped around the South Carolina state line by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office and officers from South Carolina, according to investigators.

Police charged 38-year-old Rosheeda Shanta Prince with larceny of a motor vehicle, fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle and possession of stolen goods or property.  She is being held in the Richmond County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond.

Two men, 29-year-old Parrish Omar Harris and 55-year-old Manboy Gilvester Allen, were each charged and booked under a $2,500 secured bond.

Available online records did not list a court date.

Prince was convicted in 2004 of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, according to records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction.

Her probation was revoked in 2006, resulting in a 16-month incarceration.

Harris’ conviction record includes convictions of assault on a female, misdemeanor larceny and misdemeanor breaking and entering in 2009, for which he was initially given probation.

His probation was revoked the following year, landing him behind bars for three months.

Harris was also convicted of assault and communicating threats in 2011, speeding to elude arrest in 2013, and assault on a female in 2015.

Allen has no previous convictions in the state, according to records.

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