Rowan investigators arrested a Salisbury man on Thursday believed to be responsible for several break-ins in the county.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, 30-year-old David Matthew Allen was arrested and charged with breaking into homes in the 2000 block of Mooresville Road and on Sherrill’s Ford Road.
Deputies said Allen, of 411 Mitchell Ave., is on probation after being convicted of two counts of misdemeanor larceny in July. He was sentenced to 24 months of probation.
Investigators said neighbors at one of the victimized homes reported a white Dodge Nitro was seen at the residence prior to the break-in. Deputies were told that the driver appeared to be a “clean-cut young white male.”
The report said the vehicle description matched that of other break-ins in the western part of the county.
Deputies said they spoke with Salisbury Police officers, who confirmed that they had also heard the description provided.
Allen was charged with two counts of felony breaking and entering and felony larceny.
He was in jail Friday under a $75,000 bond.
Investigators believe Allen may be involved in other incidents and ask that anyone with information contact Detective Christine Brown 704-216-8715 or Lt. Chad Moose 704-216-8687.
