Arrests made in burglary ring
By Shavonne Potts
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged four people in a burglary ring, clearing up 15 unsolved burglary cases.
Detectives began investigating numerous break-ins in eastern Rowan County during September.
Darrell Wayne Parks, 44, of 6860 River Road, Richfield, was charged early last week with breaking into a couple’s home while they were on their honeymoon.
A relative of the couple went to the Mossy Oak Lane home to find it empty of all furnishings except a sofa and refrigerator.
Detectives responded to the River Road home, where they located the stolen property from Mossy Oak Lane, property stolen from a construction site in the Gold Hill area and a stolen utility trailer from Old Beatty Ford Road near Gold Hill.
Parks, also known as Darrell Parker, was charged this week with felony breaking and entering/larceny, felony larceny and misdemeanor larceny.
Also charged are:
– Marvin R. Kiser, of 103 Sunset Drive, Rockwell, with felony breaking and entering/larceny, three counts of felony larceny.
He has been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,500 bond.
– Karie Hinson Kiser, also of 103 Sunset Drive, Rockwell, with two counts of felony breaking and entering/larceny, felony larceny and misdemeanor larceny.
She has been released from the county jail under a $1,000 bond.
– Carl Felix Kiser II, of 912 Bost Wood Lane, Concord, with three counts of felony breaking and entering/larceny and felony larceny.
Kiser remains in the Rowan County jail under $20,000.
During the course of this investigation, detectives recovered approximately $150,000 in stolen property from Rowan and Cabarrus counties and cleared 15 Rowan County break-in or larceny cases.
Several of these larcenies involved houses under construction, where building materials and appliances were stolen.
Detectives discovered that Parks was attempting to sell property and a trailer that matched the items stolen.
Additional property was located linking Parks to more break-ins and larcenies in Rowan and Cabarrus counties.
The investigation revealed Parks and Felix and Marvin Kiser often worked together and planned different crimes, including the break-ins and larcenies.
Detectives developed Marvin and Felix Kiser as suspects in these crimes. Investigators discovered stolen property at other locations in Rockwell and Cabarrus County.
Property from the Mossy Oak Lane break-in was located at Marvin Kiser’s residence in Rockwell. Detectives responded to a relative of Kiser on Cold Springs Road in Cabarrus County near Concord and located a new air conditioning unit stolen in April from 110 Aviation Drive, Gold Hill, and a utility trailer from Bost’s Graphics located at 8225 U.S. 52 in Rockwell.
The trailer was stolen the night of Sept. 16 at the same time a motor scooter was stolen from a residence next door to Bost’s Graphics. The scooter was recovered at Parks’ River Road home.
The Sheriff’s Office still has two chainsaws, two battery-powered power tools and a car stereo that have not been connected to a case but are believed to be stolen.
Any information on this case or property can be given to Detective Sgt. C.A. Moose at the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, 704-216-8687, or Crime Stoppers, 1-866-639-5245.
