Stuck in the mud: Two charged with breaking and entering

Authorities say two men didn’t get very far after they were caught taking scrap metal from an Old Mocksville Road home where their truck became stuck in the mud. The two were charged with breaking into a garage at the home.
John Wayne Locklear, 26, and William Joseph Lee Elliott, 36, were charged with felony breaking and entering and misdemeanor larceny. Both remain in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $10,000 secured bond.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office was called to the home by the homeowner, who said there were two men in the yard stuck in the mud. A neighbor alerted the property owner, who then called authorities. The caller said the men had taken a metal yard fence and metal post from the owner’s garage. When deputies arrived the men said they had permission from the owner. The officer determined the men did not have permission.
Locklear has been convicted of breaking and entering, resisting arrest, arson and larceny after breaking and entering. Elliott has been convicted of drug possession, driving while license revoked, driving while impaired, larceny and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
