LAURINBURG — Police have captured a 41-year-old Laurinburg man accused of leaving an ex-girlfriend tied up in her home while stealing several items and driving away in her car, according to Assistant Police Chief Cliff Sessoms.
Kenneth Wayne Ivey surrendered quietly to police shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, Sessoms said, and was booked in the Scotland County jail for charges of kidnapping, assault on a female, felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering.
Because he violated his parole stemming from convictions last May, he is being held without bond.
Sessoms said the department, working with Scotland County sheriff’s deputies and county probation officers, located Ivey at a home on Highland Road.
“We searched a residence he was known to frequent,” he said. “… We did not have any problems. He came quietly.”
Police have been seeking Ivey since 1:31 a.m. Wednesday, when 38-year-old Lorie Carlyle, of New Street, escaped from the bonds in which Ivey allegedly tied her and called police, reporting that he taken several items and driven away in her red 2006 Pontiac G6 sedan.
Carlyle said Ivey forced his way into her home at about 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers recovered the car, Sessoms said, but a cellphone, laptop and debit card have not yet been found. The case remains under investigation, he said.
Ivey is a convicted felon who has served a little more than one of his three years of probation for breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering, according to state records.
He has several misdemeanor charges on his record, including trespassing, communicating threats, assault on a policeman and possession of drug paraphernalia.
