The Roanoke Rapids Police Department is hoping for your help finding two suspects wanted since June.

Det. Frankie Griffin, of the city’s police department, said a local business suffered a break-in and larceny back in June. Two suspects in the crime, identified as Barbara Krasnecky, 23, who is from Massachusetts, and Brandon Hux, 27, of Roanoke Rapids, were sought in connection to the crime.

Griffin said the pair, who are a couple, fled the area and went to Massachusetts. However, Griffin said investigators now have reason to believe they may be back in the area.

“They have been on the run since June and are rumored to be back in the area,” Griffin said.

Griffin said the pair were spotted over the weekend in a red SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer.

Krasnecky is being sought on charges of larceny by an employee and conspiracy. Hux is being sought on charges of breaking and entering, safe cracking, larceny and conspiracy. He has outstanding warrants on other larceny charges as well.

Anyone with information on Hux and Krasnecky is asked to call Halifax County Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
