Salisbury Police have arrested and charged a teen who they say is connected to a number of break-ins that occurred in neighborhoods near the Hefner V.A. Medical Center during the Christmas holiday.
Demetri Tyrone Barber, 18, of the 500 block of South Shaver Street, Salisbury was charged Sunday with one count breaking and entering, larceny and obtaining property by false pretenses, all of which are felonies.
Barber was arrested overnight Sunday at the intersection of Forney and Tabernacle streets. He remains in the Rowan County Detention center under a $15,000 secured bond.
Officials don’t believe Barber is tied to similar break-ins of houses that occurred a few weeks before Christmas in the area of West Horah Street and Brenner Avenue. In late December, another man, Arthur James Jackson III, 38, was charged with those break-ins. Salisbury Police found Jackson outside a West Horah Street home with items taken from a nearby home.
Officials did say they suspect Barber is connected to break-ins that occurred on West Corriher Avenue, South Link Avenue and Ackert Avenue, near the Hefner VA Medical Center. During those break-ins, police say, thieves took electronics, jewelry, food and other items. Investigators don’t believe the two men were working together.
