SALISBURY — Two men were charged this weekend with driving a stolen pickup and trying to break into other vehicles in the Marriott hotel parking lot, police say.

Salisbury Police charged Jonathan Tyre Martinez, 18, of the 100 block of Village Lane, Apt. B, Greensboro, with misdemeanor attempted breaking and entering a motor vehicle and felony receiving or transferring stolen vehicle.

Deangelo Rashawn Willis, 22, of the 1700 block of Citadel Court, Kannapolis, was charged with misdemeanor attempted breaking and entering a motor vehicle, felony receiving or transferring stolen vehicle, felony probation violation.

Police responded around 11 p.m. on Saturday to 120 Marriott Circle where hotel staff said two men were looking into vehicles and pulling on door handles. By the time police arrived the men had left, but were stopped by police near South Arlington and Harrel streets.

The men were stopped by a N.C. Highway Patrol trooper who later determined the pickup was stolen from Greensboro. Both men remain in the Rowan County Detention Center — Martinez under a $7,500 secured bond and Willis under a $20,000 secured bond.
