A Lexington couple face larceny charges for trying to shoplift 21 Blu-ray DVDs from the Kmart store in Salisbury on Saturday.
Salisbury Police charged Jessica Leighanne Brindle, 30, of 209 Peacock Ave., Lexington, and Patrick Julius Gleave, 26, of the streets of Lexington, with larceny using an anti-inventory device.
The 21 DVDs were valued at $537.79. Reports said the couple removed security devices that activate anti-shoplifting controls.
Brindle and Gleave each were placed under $700 bond. A warrant also was served on Gleave for his failure to appear in court on a drug paraphernalia possession charge. His bond was set at $500 in that matter.
In another report, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged 17-year-old Matthew Travis Dartt of 225 Parks Road, Salisbury, with injury to real property and second-degree trespass in connection to a vandalism Thursday at Woodleaf Elementary School.
Reports said Dart damaged windows at the school. He was released into the custody of his parents.
