Burlington, NC -- Police in Burlington say they found two people from Winston-Salem with outstanding warrants for Strong Armed Robbery in possession of drugs and a stolen vehicle at a Country Inn and Suites. 

Officers were called to the inn at 3211 Wilson Dr., Thursday at 9:07 am, after they said they were notified about suspicious activity. 

Police said they confronted a man and a woman who rented a room. They believed the two people had a stolen 2007 Toyota SUV from Durham. During that time, the man climbed out the window and fell to the ground before running away. Police captured him on Long Pine Road.

Investigators determined the people rented the room under false pretenses and were wanted for an armed robbery in Winston-Salem.

Ruben Noel Torres, 43, was taken to Alamance County Regional Medical center for non-life threatening injuries. He was charged with Felony Possession of Stolen Goods, False Pretense, Felony Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Resisting Arrest and Strong Armed Robbery. The Nottoway County Sheriff's Office from Virginia had a warrant on Torres for Larceny of a Motor Vehicle. Police said all charges will be processed after he is released from the hospital.

Meredith Huffman Moore, 35, was charged with Felony Possession of Stolen Goods, False Pretense, Felony Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Strong Armed Robbery. She was placed in the Alamance County Jail under a $25,000 secured bond.
