Man who removed monitoring device caught

Rowan authorities say a man added to their most wanted list five days ago for removing his electronic monitoring device has been captured.
Jonathan Todd Trexler, 45, was arrested Wednesday in China Grove.
Officials said Monday that Trexler was issued the device by the probation division. Trexler was serving a sentence that required him to be monitored electronically as part of his probation.
Rowan County Sheriff’s officials received information that Trexler was at a house in the 600 block of East Ketchie Street in China Grove. Sheriff’s deputies and China Grove Police Chief Eddie Kluttz and Officer J.E. Briggs went to the home.
After a brief scuffle, officials said Trexler was arrested.
He remains jailed under a $50,000 secured bond.
He has been charged with felony damage to or tampering with an electronic monitoring device and probation violation.
According to the N.C. Department of Correction, Trexler was convicted in 1995 for escaping prison.
