Commissioner Barber's larceny case continued
SALISBURY — Rowan County Commissioner Jon Barber’s larceny case was continued today until a visiting judge can hear it.
Barber appeared today in Rowan County District Court on a misdemeanor larceny charge in connection with the April theft of a bottle of wine from a convenience store. He was represented by attorney David Bingham.
The court set a placeholder date of Oct. 4 until Barber can be scheduled to appear before a visiting judge.
Authorities say that on April 10, Barber stole a $2.99 bottle of Wild Irish Rose wine from the Rushco store at 601 W. Jake Alexander Blvd.
The Salisbury Police Department reported an employee at the convenience store said someone stole a bottle of wine and drank it in the men’s restroom early on a Sunday morning.
Barber also was granted a continuance Aug. 2 in his driving while impaired case.
Barber was charged in May with driving while impaired, driving left of center and failing to maintain lane control after he wrecked his vehicle. Because he refused a breath test at the scene, his driver’s license was automatically revoked for 30 days.
