SALISBURY — A Salisbury man who told police that his vehicle was stolen found himself in handcuffs after a Klumac Road business break-in.

Police responded Thursday morning to a report of a suspicious person in the area of Knox Computers, 502 Klumac Road.

A witness said he saw two people run from the warehouse sometime after midnight. The witness said he saw the suspects get into a white Buick with a broken-out back window, said Police Capt. Shelia Lingle.

Two officers spotted the vehicle near Ryan Street and South Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, where it had been left unattended in the middle of the road and still running. A handgun was found on the ground near the passenger side.

Police surrounded the area and a short time later, a man later identified as Demmanuelle Tyyan Fincher told them his vehicle had been stolen. Officers said they noticed that Fincher, 20, was sweating and his clothes were covered in grass.

Salisbury Police charged Fincher with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny and misdemeanor possession of stolen goods. Police said a TV, cellphones, a pellet gun and a computer were stolen. Police recovered a BB gun and the television.

No other arrests were made.

Fincher remains in the Rowan County jail under a $7,500 secured bond.
