Man's trouble with the law continues

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon Wednesday after police said they found the man holding a handgun when they responded to a call.
A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report said Robert Craver, 33, was arrested and charged Wednesday morning when police responded to a call at 235 Teague Road.
Authorities said Kevin Helms, Craver’s neighbor, was found holding a 9 mm handgun when deputies arrived and said someone was trying to break into the back of his house.
After Helms placed his weapon on the ground, Craver emerged from his home, 255 Teague Road, holding a Colt .45 handgun.
Craver placed his weapon on the ground as asked and told authorities he was “coming out to see what was going on,” according to the report.
After investigating, deputies found that Craver had an outstanding warrant in Cabarrus County.
He was served the warrant and charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. He was given a $47,000 bond.
Craver was in the news in June after causing a head-on collision on his way to court. He was charged with reckless driving and driving while impaired. He was reportedly late for court and was looking for his attorney’s number in his phone at the time of collision.
Craver was also in the news in March when his pitbull, Damien Jo, fell out of the bed of his pickup. The dog was on a leash, attached to the railing, and was dragged down Jake Alexander until a woman who saw the incident flagged him down. The dog had several surgeries, but survived the incident.
