SALISBURY — What started as three breaking and entering charges snowballed this week after a Mitchell Avenue man’s arrest.
Rowan County Sheriff’s Office investigators said they received several calls over the week after details emerged about 30-year-old David Matthew Allen’s arrest.
On Dec. 23, deputies arrested Allen, of 411 Mitchell Ave., and said they believed he was involved in several other burglary cases around the county.
He was initially charged with two counts of felony breaking and entering and felony larceny.
Allen was charged earlier this week with an additional 21 counts of felony breaking and entering into vehicles, four counts of felony breaking and entering into buildings, three counts of felony larceny, four counts of misdemeanor larceny and two counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses.
Investigators said Allen’s white Dodge Nitro was spotted by neighbors at burglary victims’ homes prior to the break-ins.
The report said Allen was involved in break-ins on Mooresville Road, Sherrill’s Ford Road and others in Salisbury.
His bond has been increased to $110,000.
Investigators ask that anyone with information should contact Detective Christine Brown 704-216-8715 or Lt. Chad Moose 704-216-8687.
