Citizen, deputies foil home break-in on Patterson Road

SALISBURY — A man checking on a residence Wednesday morning surprised a break-in attempt, then deputies with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office nabbed the suspects in a Patterson Road area around the Davis Farm subdivision.
Landis Police also assisted in the arrests.
The Sheriff’s Office said deputies were dispatched to 2530 Patterson Road at 11:29 a.m. Wednesday in response to a break-in in progress.
Deputies spoke to James Gregoire, who had dropped by to check the residence. When Gregoire pulled up in his truck, he saw two men running from the house.
Gregoire also noticed a woman sitting in a dark-colored Honda Accord, parked at the home. The woman drove around his truck and sped down Patterson Road. Gregoire was able to read the car’s license tag.
Deputy Ashby, who was responding to the call, spotted the Honda and stopped it on Patterson Road, where he took the woman suspect into custody.
Meanwhile, Deputy Andrew Rowland determined the place the two male suspects were last seen — a field next to Davis Farm.
As Rowland walked the wood line near Lizzie Lane, the 911 Center received a call that a man was spotted in that area running on foot. Rowland called Landis Police for assistance with its K-9 unit.
Deputy Michael Dixon, who was assisting with the K-9 track, spotted a man, later identified as Katerious Oakes, fitting the description of one of the persons who ran from the home break-in.
Dixon placed Oakes under arrest.
Deputy Charles Cauble, riding in the area of the break-in, received information from the 911 Center that a citizen had spotted a man on foot on Patterson Road.
Cauble placed the second suspect, later identified as Jhmere Daniels, under arrest.
Each of the three suspects was charged with the break-in at 2530 Patterson Road. The trio also were charged with another home break-in that occurred at 3417 Weaver Road., China Grove, which is not far from the Patterson Road address.
Those charged:
• Jhmere Desmond Daniels, 25, of 1074 Pond Court, Kannapolis, with two counts of felony breaking and entering and a count of felony larceny. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond.
• Katerious Arnez Oakes, 25, of 1280 Hidden Oaks Drive SE, Concord, with two counts of felony breaking and entering and a count of felony larceny. He was placed in jail under a $25,000 secured bond.
• Amber Nicole Smith, 28, of 543 Odell School Road, Concord, with two counts of felony breaking and entering, a count of felony larceny, driving while license revoked, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond.
Daniels already is on probation after being involved in residential break-ins previously in Rowan County. Oakes was arrested in March for felony child abuse.
