Authorities charged Moore and O’Brien with taking tire and wheel mounts from several local businesses. Moore remains in the Rowan County Detention Center with a total bond of $42,500.

Investigators found seven marijuana plants inside the Faith Road home. The occupants of the Faith Road home were Dustin Michael Houser, 29, and Buddy Gale Samples III, 24.

Houser was charged with felony breaking and entering, felony possession of burglary tools, felony larceny, felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He has since been released from the county jail under a $7,500. Samples was charged with felony manufacturing a controlled substance and simple possession of a controlled substance. He has since been released under a $2,500 secured bond from the county jail.

A fourth man, Heath Allen O’Brien, 20, of the 6900 block of Stokes Ferry Road, was charged with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny. He has since been released from the county jail under a $2,500 secured bond.
