A Kannapolis man was arrested on Nov. 1 after deputies say he met a neighbor as he was leaving the neighbor’s home.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, John Hall, who lives at 2402 Johnson St., came home on Oct. 27 after being out of town to find his window open and his air conditioning unit missing.
Hall told authorities, according to the report, that he saw movement in the home’s curtains and when he walked to the front door, it was unlocked and opened.
The report said Hall recognized Britt Daniel, the man reportedly inside his home, because he had been staying with Hall’s neighbors at 135 McShag Drive, Kannapolis.
Just after Rowan County deputies arrived, Leigh Burleyson, who lives at the McShag Drive residence, walked over to authorities and said that Britt had just fled through the back door of her house, the report said.
Burleyson said Britt had been staying at the house for about a month, but had not slept there the previous four nights.
Deputies searched the home and found that the missing air conditioning unit had been pushed into the living room from the outside and was still plugged in and running, the report said.
Authorities said that a .22 caliber revolver, antique glassware, $400 in rolled coins and an LCD TV were missing from the home.
The report said a shotgun was lying on the couch “as if Daniel Britt had intended on taking it but was interrupted.”
Britt, 404 York Ave., was arrested at his home on Nov. 1. He was charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny and felony larceny of a firearm. He was also charged on 10 counts of failure to appear on charges in Cabarrus County.
Britt was given a $131,000 bond and was in jail on Wednesday.
