Couple accused of stealing auto parts

A Salisbury couple was arrested Sunday after deputies say they stole a Honda engine and transmission from a nearby automotive parts lot.
According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, Charity Kiger, 26, and her boyfriend Jose Perez, 44, were arrested after authorities received complaints on July 14 from Roger Spillman that Honda parts had gone missing from his lot on two separate occasions.
After an investigation, Sheriff’s Office deputies found the missing motor in a black Honda. According to the report, the missing transmission was also in the shop and was set to be installed, as well.
The shop’s owner told deputies that Perez asked him to install the parts, the report said. The vehicle was registered in Kiger’s name.
Deputies gave the parts back to Spillman and arrested and charged the couple, of 182 Hobson Drive, with felony larceny.
Kiger was given a $500 bond. Perez was given a $2,500 bond. After posting bond, both were released.
