Authorities have accused accused a Salisbury man of trying to pawn stolen items at a Mooresville Road pawn shop. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Justin Presnell, 20, of East Ridge Road, with one count felony obtaining property by false pretenses.
Officials said Presnell took a valuable coin and jewelry collection from a home in the 1200 block of Hall Road. The coin, a Walking Liberty half dollar, was sold at Reliable Pawn, 107 Mooresville Road, on Jan. 25. On Jan. 28, some jewelry was taken to the pawn shop and sold. The items have since been returned to the owner. Presnell has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond. In early February, Presnell and a female were charged with selling stolen jewelry at Pearl’s Pawn and Gun Shop in China Grove.
