By Shavonne Walker
SALISBURY — Rowan authorities say some residents of the Grace Ridge subdivision reported thieves broke into their vehicles overnight Monday, taking with them money and an iPad. All of the incidents were reported Tuesday.
Jason Overcash reported he’d already left his home in the 1300 block of Gracebrook Drive, but his truck was broken into sometime overnight. When Overcash got into the pickup, he said, items were scattered about and the glove box was open. He said it appeared the only thing missing was his vehicle registration card.
Alphonso Davis and Shana Cauthen reported an iPad was stolen from his vehicle, which had the doors unlocked in the 200 block of Maple Ridge Circle. He believes it happened sometime after 10 p.m. Cauthen saw her vehicle had been broken into around 7:20 a.m. on Tuesday. Items from the middle console between the seats were scattered onto the driver’s seat. The serial number from the iPad was entered into a law enforcement database.
Thomas Jones reported someone rummaged through his unlocked vehicle in the 1300 block of Gracebrook Drive where $250 from his 13-year-old son’s wallet and $250 from his wallet were stolen. Some of the contents of the car were strewn about the floor board and outside of the vehicle.
Jones said his vehicle was last secured at 11 p.m. and he discovered it the next day at 6:45 a.m.
Jonathan Bost reported his van was parked outside his home in the 300 block of Maple Ridge Circle when it was broken into, officials said.
Bost came out a day after the break-in around 10:15 a.m. where he saw items scattered in the front seat and papers that had been in the glove box were tossed out as well. He said his wallet was missing, along with credit and debit cards, his driver’s license, Social Security card and checkbook. It’s not clear if his van was locked.
Matthew Morgan told authorities his vehicle was broken into on the 1000 block of Gracebrook Drive. He was home by 9:30 p.m., took the dog for a walk around 11:30 p.m and everything was fine at that time. He came out to his truck the next day and the door was slightly open. There were items scattered inside the truck, which was unlocked. The thief took Morgan’s driver’s license, as well as credit and debit cards.
