Cleveland man, reportedly intoxicated, thinks he’s at home, tries to break into the house

Police believe a Cleveland man was intoxicated when he was found outside a Keystone Drive home, officials say, trying to break into it.

Salisbury Police charged Travis Heath Davidson, 24, of the 1200 block of Bear Poplar Road, with attempted first-degree breaking and entering. The homeowner called saying there was a man banging on their back door. The owner threatened to call police and the man shouted an obscenity, telling the owner he didn’t care. An officer asked Davidson where he was and he gave the officer his address. He has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $5,000 secured bond.
