Sheriff: Rockwell man, friend accused of breaking into Gold Hill home

Authorities charged two Rockwell men with breaking into a Gold Hill home after the owner installed a deer camera inside the home, a report said.

The owner noticed some items missing from the outside of the home and figured it was a matter of time before someone broke into his house so he placed a deer camera on the refrigerator facing the front door. The video showed two males walk into the home just before 5:30 p.m. on Friday and leave with six black boxes.

The owner recognized the two men, one of whom is dating his estranged wife, and the other is a friend of the boyfriend.

Rowan County Sheriff’s officials charged Donald Calvin Proctor, 29, of the 100 block of Rock Olive Road, and Justin Wayne Misenheimer, 27, of the 1000 block of Wilcoy Park Drive,  with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny,

Misenheimer is said to be the boyfriend, a report said, and is accused along with Proctor of taking a computer, subwoofer and jewelry from the home. The estranged wife is accused of asking a friend to hide the items at her house. Authorities were alerted about the stolen items and were able to obtain arrest warrants for the two men. Authorities continue to investigate the estranged wife’s involvement, the report said.

Proctor remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $,2500 secured bond while Misenheimer has since been released under a $2,500 secured bond.

Proctor was convicted of possession of marijuana, a seatbelt violation and possession of drug paraphernalia, all are misdemeanors. Misenheimer was convicted of misdemeanor larceny.
