The witness advised that when Knight returned to the vehicle from the rear of the victim’s residence, he had money and was in a hurry to leave the residence.

Knight was subsequently charged with one count each of felony first-degree burglary and first-degree larceny after a breaking and entering. He is scheduled to appear on Aug. 28 in Richmond County District Court.
