Salisbury police have issued warrants for man who stole copper gutters from Fulton Heights neighborhood

SALISBURY — Police officials say they are looking for anyone with information about the whereabouts of Nathaniel Lee Lynn, who is accused of stealing gutters from three homes in the Fulton Heights neighborhood.

Lynn, 38, whose last known address is 110 Pinecrest St. in Salisbury, is wanted for one felony offense and two misdemeanor offenses. Warrants have been issued, but the Salisbury Police Department is asking for the public’s help to find Lynn.

The warrants are for the May 1 thefts at 217 S. Church St., 420 Mitchell Ave. and 422 Mitchell Ave.

Salisbury Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Blackwell and her husband, Jody, had recently installed security cameras outside their Mitchell Avenue home. Their surveillance video captured a man taking what he believed to be copper gutters from their home.

Maggie Blackwell said the gutters were actually aluminum that were painted to resemble copper.

The video shows a white man wearing shorts, a T-shirt, sneakers and a hat walk up to the Blackwell property and yank the gutters down. He works for about 15 minutes, then hauls the gutters away.

He also is seen walking to her neighbors’ homes on either side.

When the Blackwells noticed that their gutters were gone, they searched through the video footage.

Anyone with information on the location of Lynn is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245. Tips may be submitted online at http://tips.salisburyrowancrimestoppers.
