Police: Man steals copper from house in his own neighborhood

KANNAPOLIS — Authorities said a Kannapolis man didn’t go far to steal.
Kevin Barkley, 27, of 2180 Kendra Drive, reportedly took copper, electrical wiring and an electrical panel box from an empty mobile home not far from his.
A mobile home at 2170 Kendra Drive was unoccupied when it was broken into and the items taken.
According to the report, Barkley took the items to a scrap metal dealer. He was later developed as a suspect, a department report said.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Barkley with breaking and entering and larceny, both felonies.
The owner estimates the value of the wiring at $8,000 and the panel box at $2,000.
Barkley was released from the Rowan County jail after posting bond.
