SALISBURY — A Thomasville man is wanted by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office on charges of stealing a vehicle from Miller’s Used Cars in Salisbury.

On April 24, a 2005 gray Honda Civic was stolen from the car lot.

Rowan authorities are looking for 44-year-old Kenneth Wayne Linton, who was seen on video in Bennettsville, South Carolina, in June driving the stolen vehicle.

Information on the car was entered into a law enforcement database.

The video shows a white woman in the passenger’s seat.

Authorities say Linton stole a Jeep in Bennettsville that was later recovered near North Carolina.

Arrest warrants have been obtained for larceny of a motor vehicle in Rowan County.

The Bennettsville Police Department has also issued warrants for larceny and possession of stolen property.

Linton is believed to still be operating the stolen Honda Civic and was last seen driving toward North Carolina.

Linton has been added to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office most-wanted list.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687, Detective Kyle Youngo at 704-216- 8683, or CrimeStoppers 866-639-5245.
