Two charged with breaking into vacant home

Police charged two people with breaking into a vacant Salisbury home, officials say, to sleep. The owner of the property saw someone inside and called authorities, who later discovered the two asleep inside.
Salisbury Police charged Carlos “Shorty” Sinqua Boyd, 34, of the 400 block of South Lee Street, and Maria Antoinette Simpson, 32, of the 400 block of Milford Hills Road, each with misdemeanor breaking and entering.
The two remain in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $300 secured bond.
The owner contacted law enforcement and said he could see someone inside through the window. He said the person appeared to be asleep.
An officer found Boyd and Simpson inside the home, a report said.
The officer said nothing appeared to be damaged or taken, the two were just asleep.
According to the N.C. Department of Correction, Simpson is an absconder from the probation and parole supervision. She is on probation for an August 2012 conviction for resisting arrest and second-degree trespass, both misdemeanors. In November 2010, she was convicted of felony attempted first-degree arson. Simpson has also been convicted of drug possession, larceny, simple assault, injury to property, drunk and disorderly, shoplifting, all of which are misdemeanors.
Boyd has been convicted of felony drug possession, misdemeanor trespassing, misdemeanor assault on a female and felony common law robbery.
