KANNAPOLIS — Authorities said a Kannapolis man didn’t go far to steal items from a home.
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 has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
