More break-in charges for man

SALISBURY — The Salisbury man who allegedly fell through the ceiling of St. Matthew’s Church in December while trying to steal copper wiring is back in jail after the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says he broke into a relative’s garage and truck, taking and pawning several of the items.
James Ashley Kincaid, 22, of 485 Hyde Lane, was charged with felony breaking and entering, felony breaking and entering of a building, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, misdemeanor larceny and felony larceny. He is in jail under a $3,000 secured bond.
According to a report from the Sheriff’s Office, on March 27, Lucinda Leach called authorities to report the larceny of hedge clippers, a pressure washer, chainsaw and two drills, from her garage.
While investigating the case, authorities discovered Leach’s truck had also been entered and a saw and hand tools had been taken.
Leach suspected that a relative, Kincaid, broke into the garage and truck and took the items.
A warrant for Kincaid’s arrest was issued and he was arrested Thursday.
Kincaid told authorities he was involved, the report said.
Authorities said some of the items have been recovered.
