SALISBURY — Rowan County authorities have charged two more people after a lengthy investigation into a number of break-ins at area businesses, including convenience stores.

Officials had already brought charges against Jonathan Paul Holshouser. He was arrested a few days after Christmas.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Kadett Kirkman Wilson, 41, of the 5200 block of Long Ferry Road with accessory after the fact and possession of stolen goods, both felonies.

Stanley Lee Myers, 63, also of the 5200 block of Long Ferry Road, was charged with felony possession of stolen goods.

Wilson remains in the Rowan County jail under a $25,000 secured bond. Myers is in jail under a $30,000 secured bond.

Over the Christmas weekend, Holshouser was arrested and linked to several break-ins including three at Raja Mart on Mooresville Road that dated to August.

Detectives also linked Holshouser to a December break-in at Gold Hill Market and the recent break-in of a Salisbury Dollar General on Mooresville Road. Officials said the store’s safe was stolen in the Dollar General break-in.

Myers had the safe and money from that break-in, according to an arrest warrant. The warrant said Wilson allowed Holshouser to crack the safe open in her home and kept money from it.

Holshouser also was determined to be involved in the December attempted larceny of the ATM at Food Lion Credit Union on Harrison Road as well as the larceny of the truck used to destroy the ATM, Rowan officials have said.

During the course of the investigation, stolen property was discovered from Iredell County. The safe from a Dollar General break-in in Davie County also is being linked to Holshouser.

Jonathan Holshouser remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond.
