Man arrested on indecent liberties, burglary charges
SALISBURY — Police arrested an East Lafayette Street man during a burglary investigation Wednesday morning.
Police stopped Anthony Fudge about 3 a.m. near West Innes Street after an alarm was triggered at Schuler Pool on North Main Street.
Officers spoke to Fudge and found he had outstanding warrants on charges of felony first-degree burglary and felony indecent liberties with children.
As they searched the 35-year-old, police said they found about a gram of cocaine under Fudge’s ball cap.
Despite a plea to officers to let him just throw the drugs away, a police report said, he was additionally charged with felony possession of cocaine.
Police have not charged Fudge in relation to the Schuler Pool break-in. Officers said the investigation is ongoing.
Fudge was in jail Wednesday under a $50,000 bond.
