Investigators with the Wayne County Sheriff's Office interviewed Terrance
Donnell Deloach at the Wayne County Sheriff's Office.
Terrance Donell Deloach stated as follows: that he was the individual
responsible for the armed robbery and shooting of the woman at the finance
company out from Goldsboro. Deloach related that he was with Keith Riddick,
his cousin, and Kendrick Henderson (nickname Bo) when the robbery occurred.
Deloach said that he was from Brooklyn, New York. That he and Keith Riddick
was raised by the same woman. Deloach stated that his mother died when he was
six years old and Riddick's grandmother raised him and Riddick.
Deloach related that he came to Goldsboro by the request of Riddick. Deloach
stated Riddick had also told him of a robbery he and Henderson had done in
Goldsboro to a pager company. Deloach stated that Riddick had earlier told him
about he and Henderson planning the robbery earlier; however, the other ones
got scared and backed out. Deloach related that on the day of the robbery he was at his girlfriend's
residence located at 910-B Hugh Streeet in Goldsboro. Deloach stated he had
been smoking marijuana and drinking liquor before Riddick's arrival. Deloach
stated that Riddick told him to go with him that they were going to another
location to smoke more marijuana. Deloach said that once they were in the
vehicle Riddick told him they were going to pick Bo (Kendrick Henderson) up at
his residence and go rob the finance company.
Deloach was informed by Riddick
that his girlfriend (Riddick's) Sabrina had already been to the company earlier
in the day to check and see if they had cameras. Deloach said that Riddick
told him that Sabrina had gone to the place earlier acting like she was trying
to get a[line garbled] vehicle a blue or greenish Honda type. Deloach
related that Riddick had already got the gun and hospital surgical gloves for
them to wear. When they had picked Bo (Henderson) up at his residence in Seven Springs they
went to go do the robbery. Deloach stated that Riddick was driving, he was in
the front seat and Bo was in the back seat. Deloach stated that Bo gave him
the gun before they went in. It was a .38 caliber revolver. Deloach stated it
was an old rusty gun.
Deloach stated it was about 4:30 or 5:00 he thinks.
Deloach related that Bo was the one that was taping the people up. Deloach
also said that Bo began having trouble taping the people because the tape was
sticking to his gloves so he took his gloves off. Deloach stated that Riddick
is the one that got the money. Deloach stated that Bo (Henderson) and Riddick
had masks on their face and hoodies on their head. Deloach stated he was the
only one not wearing a mask. Deloach stated he was wearing a tobogan, grey in
color with some type of emblem on it. He said he was also wearing a red scarf
around his neck, but didn't have it pulled around his face. Deloach related he was the only one that had a gun. That when he went in he
didn't have any intentions of hurting or shooting anyone. Deloach stated he
was hyped up due to the marijuana he had been smoking and the liquor he had
been drinking. Deloach stated that the first time the gun went off he was
looking at Bo (Henderson). Deloach stated he didn't even realize he had shot
the woman until he looked down. Deloach stated he was in a daze after this and
is unsure of exactly what happened after this. Deloach stated he knows he
fired the gun at the woman again but does not know why he did it. Deloach
stated it must have been the drugs in him.
Deloach stated they left and drove back to Goldsboro going to his girlfriend's
house on Hugh Street. No one was at home. Deloach related that in about five
minutes they left and the three of them went to Sabrina's trailer at Maramar.
Deloach stated that the money, gloves, and gun was put into a green book bag
that Riddick was carrying. Deloach stated once they arrived at Sabrina's house
the money was counted and divided. Deloach stated he thinks that about nine
hundred dollars is what they got. Sabrina got one hundred fifty dollars for
going and checking the place out and for the use of her car.
Deloach stated he
is telling this now because he didn't want a innocent man going to prison.
Deloach further stated he is sorry for what he done and he hates what he did to
the woman, that he never meant to hurt her.
