SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men Friday and charged them in connection to a break-in and theft from a company storage building at 2470 Highway 152 East.

The break-in occurred between Nov. 7 and Friday. Holt was placed under $1,500 bond, and Daniels’ bond was set at $10,000.
But Daniels also faces other charges connected to manufacturing drugs, conspiracy, trafficking, possession of a precursor chemical and failure to appear and comply in court so that his bond was set at more than $100,000 on these other charges.
In other reports from the Rowan Magistrate’s Office, Officer R.T. Taylor of the Granite Quarry-Faith Police Authority charged Matthew Garren Smith, 17, of 1155 Balfour Quarry Road with first-degree burglary, misdemeanor larceny and obtaining property by false pretense.
He is accused of breaking into the residence of Christopher Catoe of 237 Railroad St. and stealing a Playstation 3 gaming console valued at $150.

Smith was placed under $10,000 bond.
The Granite Quarry-Faith Police Authority also charged Peter Thomas Kiever of 1304 Stonewyck Drive with cyberstalking.
