Authorities say a Salisbury man charged in a 2007 burglary ring was caught breaking into a home Sunday night.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Jonathan Grant Houck Vernon, 42, of 240 Scrub Pine Drive, with second-degree burglary and resisting arrest.
According to an arrest warrant, Vernon entered a King Road home sometime after 7 p.m. After being discovered, he ran. A sheriff’s deputy twisted his ankle while chasing the suspect, according to scanner reports.
In September, Vernon was charged with nearly a dozen counts of breaking and entering. That case is pending with a May court date.
His wife, Sylvia Vernon, was also charged in the 2007 crimes. In December, she received a 45-day suspended sentence and 12 months probation for two counts misdemeanor possession of stolen goods. Two charges of felony possession of stolen goods were dismissed.
