Sheriff: Four charged with numerous car break-ins

Rowan County Sheriff’s officials charged a Salisbury group they say are responsible for a number of car break-ins in the eastern part of the county. Many of the victims were within walking distance of the suspects.
Officials charged the following:
• Angel Gale Flake, 36, of the 1100 block of Tammy Park Road, with four counts felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, one count felony obtaining property by false pretenses and four counts misdemeanor larceny;
• Michael Manuel Flake, 31, also of the 1100 block of Tammy Park Road, with four counts felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle and four counts misdemeanor larceny;
• James Edward Coe, 31, of the 8900 block of Fisher Road, with four counts felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle and four counts misdemeanor larceny;
• Carlos Manuel Rodriguez Jr., 22, of the 1200 block of Bell Street, one count felony breaking and entering a motor vehicle, one count misdemeanor larceny and one count misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer.
Angel Flake, James Coe and Carlos Rodriguez each received $25,000 secured bonds while Michael Flake received a $100,000 secured bond. All remain in the Rowan County Detention Center.
Rodriguez received an extra $500 secured bond for trying to run from the Salisbury Police when they went to arrest him at his home.
Officials said sometime on the night of June 15 and the morning of June 16, the four were involved in a series of car break-ins near Rainey Road in Salisbury.
The suspects took a variety of items that include copper and brass plumbing pipes and fixtures, electronics, children’s shoes, medication and a car stereo.
The suspects went from car to car looking for vehicles that were unlocked. They removed belongings from all of the cars they found to be unlocked.
Officials said the four were able to walk to their targets since they lived in the area. The scrap metal was taken to Foil’s Incorporated, on Klumac Road, where it was found and recovered. Coe had been arrested in 2012 for 25 car break-ins that took place in the same area.
