Gnomes, furniture disappear

Three gnomes, two wrought iron tables and a water pitcher were taken from the porch of a Kannapolis woman’s home sometime between Jan. 18 and 19, and the owner, Jeanne Baucom, wants them back.
“The tables were a Mother’s Day gift and I’d like to have them back,” she said.
She said the gnomes are about a foot in height, and were posed in positions related to gardening, such as pushing a wheelbarrow.
Baucom said her porch is close to the street, and didn’t know how the items were taken without notice.
“I have been here for several years and nothing’s gotten gone like this,” she said. “I thought it was unusual.”
The total value of the stolen items is around $315.
Other incidents reported to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office:
• Tony Wilson reported someone entered his car and took his cell phone while it was parked at MBE Cylinder Heads and Manifold, 1018 B Gateway Drive.
Wilson’s phone, a Sprint Evo, is valued at $530.
• Betty Jo Tevepaugh reported someone entered her car while it was parked at the Citgo in China Grove, 2910 E. N.C. 152, and took her purse.
In her purse was a debit card, driver’s license, Social Security card and $25 cash.
• Mary Kluttz of Safrit Road reported someone entered her home and took $160 cash and a $50 American Express gift card.
