Teens charged with fairgrounds break-in

A 16-year-old and four juveniles were charged with felonies for allegedly breaking into the Rowan County Fairgrounds Sunday afternoon and taking a two liters of Cheerwine, the sheriff’s office reported today.
Zachary Wayne Nichols, of Salisbury, and three female and one male juvenile were each charged with felony breaking and entering, injury to real property and first-degree trespassing.
Nichols was given a $7,500 secured bond, while the juveniles were handed over to juvenile services.
According to the report, someone saw people walking around the fairgrounds and called authorities. When a K-9 deputy with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office arrived, the dog immediately went to the entrance gate and was very alert, the report said.
As the officer approached the concession stand area of the grounds, he saw five people walking around and detained them until backup arrived.
The parents of the juveniles — three of whom lived in apartments next door at The Grand on Julian — were called.
Nichols told authorities he was visiting one of the male juveniles when they decided to take a walk through the fairgrounds, the report said.
