Authorities have arrested the main suspect in a recent home invasion robbery of American Idol alumni Scotty McCreery and his friends.
The Associated Press reported that the suspect turned himself into police on Tuesday night. Mikkail Jamal Shaw, 19, was charged with armed robbery and conspiracy. It is not clear if Shaw had an attorney representing him.
The search for the rest of the subjects that took part in the break in is still ongoing.
CNN added that the break in took place late in the evening around 2 a.m. and that three armed suspects entered into the home and stole money, wallets and other expensive items before they left the location which is close to North Carolina State University.
No one was injured during the home invasion.
The County music star took to Facebook to express his thanks to the police department for their hard work. He also assured fans that even though it was a scary experience, he is doing alright and is safe.
