Salisbury man charged with taking metal from golf cart company

A Salisbury man is accused of selling metal items he stole from a golf cart supply company.
Michael David Akers, 43, of the 200 block of Tumbleweed Drive, is charged with breaking and entering a building, larceny and obtaining property by false pretenses, all felonies, according to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report.
A representative from Custom Golf Carts Supply, 6365 S. Main St., told investigators someone stole metal racks, conveyor rollers and aluminum shelving from the business. The business was in the process of moving locations when the owner discovered the metal was taken.
Akers was developed as a suspect based on the information the business provided law enforcement and an investigation. A report said Akers sold the items to Foil’s Recycling Inc. on Klumac Road.
He has since been released from the Rowan County jail under a $5,000 secured bond.
