Local man charged with vehicle break-in at doctor’s office

Charged

Xavier Shykeem Simpson

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was charged Friday with breaking into the vehicle of a doctor’s office employee.

The employee told police she had parked in front of Farrington Family Medicine on July 19 and didn’t realize her wallet was missing until the next day.

The Salisbury Police Department charged Xavier Shykeem Simpson, 22, of the 1300 block of Standish Street, Apartment A, with felony breaking into a motor vehicle and misdemeanor larceny.

The medical office is at 860 W. Jake Alexander Blvd.

The employee said when she arrived home that night, it appeared her car had been gone through and some change had been taken. The woman told police she didn’t think much about it until the next day when she couldn’t find her wallet.

The woman looked at security footage at the doctor’s office, which police said positively identified Simpson.

Simpson remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,000 secured bond.

Simpson was charged earlier this month with misdemeanor larceny on an outstanding warrant related to an incident in the 1500 block of South Jake Alexander Boulevard.
