Blotter: Teen charged with breaking into vehicles

Rowan authorities charged a teen with breaking into two vehicles in February and taking various items. The same teen was charged in December after being outsmarted by the homeowner who was able to get the intoxicated teen out of her home.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Jeremy Warren Price, 16, of the 1200 block of North Main Street, with two counts felony breaking and entering a vehicle, one count misdemeanor larceny, one count felony larceny and felony larceny of a firearm.

He broke into a Mazda on Feb. 12 and took a personal vaporizer valued at $230 from a vehicle. Arrest warrants say he took a revolver from another vehicle sometime between Feb. 13 and Feb. 24 on Stone Road and well as an iPhone and Acer laptop from the vehicle owner’s home.

The teen was charged with breaking into a Stokes Ferry Road home in December. He appeared intoxicated and told the homeowner he was looking for someone. She told him the person was outside and when he walked outside, she locked the door and called 911.

He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $40,000 secured bond.
