CHINA GROVE – A man wanted for a felony probation violation was arrested after a failed attempt to hide from officers under a blanket at the foot of his bed.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported today that a deputy and Landis Police officer went to the home of Gene and Pamela Beaver, 1015 Elm Tree Lane, Sunday around 3:30 p.m. after receiving information that Beaver may be home. Beaver was wanted for a felony probation violation.
Officers knocked on the door and heard movement inside, but no one came to the door.
Eventually, Pamela Beaver came to the door. She denied her husband was there and allowed the officers to come inside and search the home.
Officers told her that if they did find him, she would also be arrested. She continued to deny that he was in the home, authorities said.
The officer shouted, “This is the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Beaver, if you’re here you need to come out to avoid another charge.”
The officers found Beaver, 42, hiding under a blanket at the foot of a bed. He was charged with delaying an officer, resist/obstruct/delay, and given a $1,500 secured bond.
Pamela Beaver, 39, was also charged with delaying an officer, and given a $500 secured bond.
