The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has charged a father and son, along with another man, with breaking into a China Grove pawn shop Tuesday morning.
Gerry Christopher Greene, 57, his son, Jason Christopher Greene, 35, and Dale Kim Little, 50, all of 309 Dollie Circle, are each charged with breaking and entering and eight counts of larceny of a firearm.
Authorities say the three kicked in a side door at China Grove Gun and Pawn Shop, 5675 S. Main St., shortly after midnight Tuesday and stole eight handguns from a glass cabinet.
Investigators developed the men as suspects after obtaining surveillance video and other information.
Capt. John Sifford said one handgun has been recovered.
The men are being held at the Rowan County Detention Center, each under $25,000 secured bond.
