SALISBURY — Police arrested two men shortly after officers said they broke into a Skyline Drive home Sunday night.
Authorities arrested 18-year-old Martin Carrillo, of Van Nuys Street, and 21-year-old Christopher Roman, of Bridge Court, about 8:19 p.m.
Officers said a Salisbury woman arrived at her Skyline Drive home about 7:15 p.m. Sunday and found a red Toyota Celica sitting in her driveway.
Police said the woman walked around to the back of the home and saw a man run from the residence and jump into the Celica.
According to a Salisbury Police report, the woman took photos of the men with her cell phone and showed them to police when they arrived.
Authorities said they located the Celica at a stop sign on Mooresville Road about an hour later.
When police approached the vehicle, the report said, officers saw a “large bag of marijuana” in the center console.
The report said Carrillo “took ownership” of the bag, which contained about 20 grams, or .71 ounces, of marijuana.
Carrillo was charged with simple possession of marijuana and misdemeanor breaking and entering.
Roman was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering.
The report said the door of the Skyline Drive home was damaged during the burglary, but nothing is believed to have been taken.
Both men were released after each posted a $1,000 bond.
