SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man they believe to be responsible for a string of recent break-ins.

Deputies arrested Jonathan Paul Holshouser, 34, over the Christmas weekend as a suspect in numerous break-ins and thefts from local businesses, according to a press release.

Deputies said the Salisbury native has been linked to break-ins at the Raja Mart on Mooresville Road dating back to August, a December break-in at the Gold Hill Market and a recent break-in at the Dollar General on Mooresville Road in which the store’s safe was stolen.
Holshouser is also suspected in the attempted larceny of an ATM at Food Lion on Harrison Road. Authorities say Holshouser used a stolen truck to destroy the machine.

Stolen property from Iredell County and a safe from a Davie County Dollar General break-in were discovered during the course of the investigation, and have also been linked to Holshouser,according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

Holshouser has been charged with these break-ins and is in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond.

As the investigation continues, more charges are possible and more arrests will be made for other individuals being identified as playing various roles in these crimes, the press release said.

Holshouser has previously been charged in Rowan County with larceny, forgery, possession and use of drug paraphernalia, possessing stolen goods and possession of a schedule VI controlled substance. He has also been charged in Davidson County with larceny.
