Teens charged in flea market break-in

Authorities charged three teens, one a juvenile, with breaking into the Webb Road Flea Market late Monday.
A security guard at the flea market spotted three people wearing black clothing running from the market around 10:10 p.m.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Randy Lynn Basinger, 17, of 510 Cliff Eagle Drive, Salisbury, and Daniel Alexander Aldridge, also 17, of 1115 Double Impact Drive, Rockwell, with breaking and entering, larceny and trespassing. A 15-year-old Salisbury female was charged and referred to juvenile authorities.
The guard noticed a table had been moved and found some items on the floor.
The suspects took Army helmets, bags of caramel candy, four General Lee model cars, two Dodge Charger Daytona model cars and a digital card.
Lt. Mark Benfield of the Landis Police Department, who was heading home at the time of the incident, spotted a car sitting near the Leach Road area. The suspects then returned to that car and were apprehended.
Deputy M.L. Shrewsbury and Sgt. T.B. Rowland of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office arrested the teens.
Basinger and Aldridge were placed in the Rowan County Detention Center. They have since posted bonds.
About a week ago, thieves broke into the flea market and stole swords and knives from a booth.
Officials say they don’t believe the two break-ins are connected.
