Salisbury man caught stealing from Rite Aid, spotted by deputy in store

A Salisbury man picked the wrong time and place to swipe items from a local drug store as a Rowan Sheriff’s deputy spotted him pocketing the items.
Salisbury Police charged Roy Hoke Drye III, 30, of the 11300 block of Old Concord Road, with shoplifting and possession of schedule III controlled substance, both misdemeanors.
A deputy saw Drye inside Rite Aid at 1605 E. Innes Street pocket a Gillette razor and some Oral B toothbrush heads. A police officer searched Drye and found a prescription bottle on him that contained 11 generic Xanax pills that belonged to his sister. Drye was issued a $500 secured bond and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center.
