Construction equipment stolen

Authorities believe the same person stole construction equipment from two different homes on Luther Barger Road late last week.
Rowan County Sheriffís Capt. John Sifford said the two incidents are more than likely related.
Someone took a chainsaw and two circular saws, a freon-leak detector and a handheld tachometer from a home in the 400 block of Luther Barger Road, Salisbury. The owner valued the equipment at more than $1,000. The incident was reported Thursday. The other incident was reported on Friday at a home in the 200-block of Luther Barger Road.
The homeowner told authorities someone took two nail guns, two drills, a canvas tool bag, a GPS device, a saw and laptop computer.
The stolen items were valued at more than $2,000.
The investigation continues.
