Investigators seek help identifying suspect
SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on a suspect involved in daytime residential break-ins.
Deputies responded to a residential break-in on Daugherty Road early in the morning last week. The crime happened during a time when most people have already left home for work, the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
A witness saw the crime and called the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies arrived on the scene in less then five minutes, but the suspect had already left, the press release said.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 40s to 50 years old, 6 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with a thin build and short gray or white hair. He may have a mustache, but a witness wasn’t certain.
The suspect was driving a vehicle described as a late 1980s or early 1990s model, square type, four-door, possibly a Buick Century or Buick LeSabre. The vehicle was dark gray, maybe slate or a bluish gray, in color. The witness said the vehicle wasn’t damaged, but the finish wasn’t shiny.
The suspect was last seen traveling toward N.C. 152 from Daugherty Road.
The Sheriff’s Office said evidence collected from crime scenes links the suspect to similar crimes.
Investigators ask anyone with information about this suspect to contact Detective Carl Dangerfield at 704-216-8711, Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
