Authorities say a video surveillance photo led to the arrest of a Rockwell man who broke into a Quantz Lane storage building.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office issued a plea on Monday for the community to help identify the suspect, who was seen on a still captured from the victim’s surveillance video, leaving the storage building wearing a hooded sweatshirt.


Justin William Green, 27, of the 100 block of Hard Rock Drive, was charged with four counts felony breaking and entering a building, four counts felony larceny, one count misdemeanor breaking and entering a building and one count misdemeanor larceny.

The owner of the storage building, David Quantz, reported a break-in at his property in September as well as subsequent break-ins. He eventually installed surveillance equipment. Someone took five batteries from the property Sept. 18 valued at more than $510, a break-in at the property Sept. 25 where $1,000 worth of copper wire was taken. The Quantz Lane property was broken into Dec. 25 where two mowers and other tools worth $1,300 were stolen. Someone also took a stick welder on March 16.

A storage building owned by Kyle Davis at Happy Lake Road in Rockwell was also broken into in April where a desk was taken. On April 13, Quantz captured a video image, and a day later investigators received information from someone who said they recognized the person in the photo. Investigators say Green is responsible for the alleged break-ins. Green remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond.
