SALISBURY — A Salisbury man placed on the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office’s most wanted list in March has been arrested and charged with not notifying officials of a change of address.

Rowan authorities say Detective Greg Bacote obtained information that William Sturgeon was living at a house on Lincolnton Road, near Salisbury High School, which is a violation of the terms of his sentencing.

Detectives went to the 800 block of Lincolnton Road and searched the home. They found 43-year-old Sturgeon hiding inside, and he was arrested. His girlfriend, Shannon Consuella Hill, 32, who was also living at the home, was arrested for helping him elude arrest.
