SALISBURY — Rowan County authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify a man caught on security video breaking into the home.

The break-in occurred about 1 p.m. Wednesday on Heilig Road, near Faith Road. The man knocked on the front door and the security alarm was activated, sparking a call to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

The man is described as having an average build, in his mid- to late 30s with dark hair and a thick mustache. He was wearing glasses.

The man arrived in a silver four-door vehicle that was driven by a second suspect.

When no one answered the door, he forced his way into the house. He left shortly after the alarm was activated.

Anyone with any information about the identity of the suspects are asked to contact Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687, investigator Craig Earnhardt at 704-216-8682 or Salisbury-Rowan CrimeStoppers at 866-639-5245.
