Police seeking teen; accomplice arrested in residential break-ins

Authorities are looking for a Granite Quarry teen after several residential break-ins near Rockwell, Granite Quarry and Salisbury. Officials have added him to their most wanted list.
A 21-year-old woman also was charged Thursday for her involvement.
Douglas Martin Patrick, 17, of the 1200 block of South Main Street, has been identified as a suspect in the break-ins, a statement from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said.
Investigators say attempts to arrest the teen have been unsuccessful. However, they have charged Destiny Marie Moore, of Cemetery Circle, Granite Quarry, with two counts of felony breaking and entering, and obtaining property by false pretenses. She was placed in the county jail under a $7,500 secured bond.
Authorities said on Feb. 15, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a daytime residential breaking and entering on Medium Drive, near Rockwell that involved the theft of electronics. The agency discovered another break-in at a home on Autumn Wood Lane, near Salisbury. A third daytime residential house break-in was located in a development, just off U.S. 52, across from East Rowan High School.
Rowan Sheriff’s detectives received information from citizens who said Granite Quarry Police was also investigating similar crimes.
During the course of the investigation, sheriff detectives identified Destiny Moore, as a suspect, and located stolen property in her possession from both the homes at Medium Drive and Autumn Wood Lane.
On Thursday, detectives with the sheriff’s criminal investigations division obtained and served a search warrant at Moore’s Granite Quarry residence. Detectives recovered additional stolen property.
In October and November 2013, Patrick was convicted of felony breaking and entering, misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor injury to real property for which he received probation.
Anyone with information about these crimes, or the location of Patrick is asked to contact Detective Teresa Haupt at 704-216-8702 or Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687.
