Rockwell teens charged with breaking into cars and businesses

ROCKWELL ó Two Rockwell teens were charged Wednesday with breaking into a number of cars and two businesses a week ago.
They are the same break-ins Rockwell authorities linked to Jerry Lane Harwood, a Rockwell teen charged with burning the petting barn at Dan Nicholas Park.
The Rockwell Police Department charged Timothy Dakota Graham, 17, of 1355 Percy Lane and Jonathan O. Honeycutt, also 17, of 109 W. Main St., Apt A, with 12 counts of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, 10 counts of misdemeanor larceny, breaking and/or entering, two counts of larceny after breaking and entering, larceny of a firearm, two counts of financial card theft and two counts of injury to real property. In addition, they are charged with breaking into a coin/currency machine and damage to a coin/currency machine, according to arrest warrants.
Both were placed in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $10,000 secured bond. Graham remains in the county jail, while Honeycutt has since been released.
The arrests came a week after Rockwell authorities reported the incidents. All of the cars broken into were unlocked, Rockwell Police Chief Hugh Bost said.
The warrant alleges the suspects broke into Simpson’s Laundromat, 203 Depot St., where money was taken from a coin-operated laundry detergent dispenser and a dollar bill changer.
Thieves pried the change cup area open by placing a “prying tool” into the dollar bill receiver, the warrant said.
According to a warrant, the Tile Place at 310 China Grove Highway, was also broken into. Thieves took a bookshelf stereo system.
Thieves took an automated teller machine card from one vehicle and a Visa card from another.
Another warrant lists the property damage: three windows broken at a Gold Hill Avenue residence; a windshield and sliding glass door broken; and dents made in a Ford van at another residence.
The two teens make their first court appearance today.
