Kannapolis man sentenced to prison for firearm possession offense

Convicted

Isaiah Montique Cuthbertson

SALISBURY — A Kannapolis man was convicted on a firearms charge this week in Rowan County Superior Court in a three-day jury trial and will spend as much as two years in prison.

Isaiah Montique Cuthbertson, 34, was convicted of felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Judge Anna Mills Wagoner sentenced Cuthbertson to a minimum of 14 months and a maximum of 26 months in prison.

On March 21, 2016, officers with the Kannapolis Police Department were sent to Cuthbertson’s home at the request of the Rowan County Department of Social Services. When officers arrived, they noticed an odor of marijuana. Cuthbertson’s girlfriend gave the officers consent to search the home, and they found a 9mm firearm under Cuthbertson’s bedroom pillow.

Cuthbertson had previously been convicted of felony breaking and entering and felony possession of stolen goods, among other offenses.

Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook said she appreciates the efforts of Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Greene and the Kannapolis Police Department in holding Cuthbertson accountable for his criminal conduct.
