Two charged with breaking into home, trying to sell items

Rowan authorities have charged two men with breaking into a rental home in August and stealing copper wiring, a refrigerator and other appliances from the property. Investigators charged a Salisbury man two weeks ago who they say was also involved in the break-in.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Mason Garrett Disbrow, 18, of the 1000 block of Starhaven Drive, Salisbury, with two counts breaking and entering a building and larceny, both felonies. He’s also charged with two counts felony larceny stemming from a storage shed break-in.
Joseph Andrew Lleras, 20, of the 1800 block of Potneck Road, Salisbury, is charged with one count felony breaking and entering, two counts felony larceny and felony obtaining property by false pretenses. Lleras remains in the county jail under a $15,000 secured bond.
Disbrow lives in the same neighborhood as the rental property. He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond.
William Torres, 25, who lives at the same address as Disbrow, was charged Sept. 26 with felony breaking and entering. Torres has since been released from the county jail.
Investigators said the three took appliances including a stove, dishwasher, water heater and other metal materials from the Starhaven Drive home.
According to an arrest warrant, Lleras tried to sell the property at TGT Recycling, presenting it as his own property. He and Disbrow also took a Honda dirt bike, four-wheeler and a bicycle from another property. In 2011, a then 16-year-old Disbrow called a woman from jail telling her he was going to break into her car again. He was in the county jail charged with a number of break-ins at homes near High Rock Lake and was later convicted. According to the N.C. Department of Corrections, the teen received probation for those break-ins as well as intimidating a witness.
Earlier this year, Lleras was charged with breaking into a home, taking jewelry and selling it.
Lleras has been convicted of drug possession, larceny, breaking and entering and financial card fraud.
