Authorities say a Salisbury man was charged Wednesday with breaking into a business after employees recognized him on a security camera.

Salisbury Police charged Donnie Donnell Fleming, 38, of the 100 block of  West Henderson Street with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny.

Officials said employees from PC Doctor, 628 North Main St., called to say someone stole two Acer laptops and one HP laptop from the front office. The cash box was taken along with personal checks that were inside.

The business’ alarm went off Tuesday around 10:30 p.m. Employees say they recognized Fleming because he had done some odd jobs at the business.

Fleming has been convicted of failing to register as a sex offender, felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance, felony second-degree rape, uttering a forged paper, felony possession of a schedule II with intent to sell, felony breaking and entering, misdemeanor larceny, misdemeanor marijuana possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Fleming has a pending 2014 court case for misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
