SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says one man had to be rescued from an air conditioning unit Thursday while trying to hide from authorities serving warrants for failure to pay child support.

The law enforcement agency conducted a round-up and made several arrests.

During the operation, 10 people were located and arrested for outstanding child support orders. As a result of the operation, six others were arrested for assisting and preventing deputies from arresting those wanted.

The following were charged on child support orders: Clifford Althoff, Darrell Carpenter, Letwon Faulk, Daniel Greene, Robert Harris, Alexea Houston, Charles Logan, Rahsaan Oneal, Brandi Wilhoit and Daniel Worley.

Charles Tomlinson and Mandy Hall, both of whom were issued a $2,500 secured bond, were charged with resist, obstruct, delay an officer. According to Sifford, the two lied to deputies about Worley being at a residence in the 700 block of Gold Knob Road in Rockwell. They are accused of assisting in hiding Worley inside the home’s heating and air conditioning ductwork.

Deputies found Worley hiding inside the HVAC vents. He had gotten stuck and had to be rescued before being taken to jail.

Sifford said Michaela Greene and Charlotte Lawson, both of whom were given $2,500 secured bonds, lied to deputies about Greene being at a residence in the 5800 block of Bertie Avenue. They allegedly slammed a door and attempted to prevent deputies from entering. Greene was found after deputies forced entry into the residence, Sifford said.

Daniel Roehm allegedly lied to deputies about Harris being inside a residence in the 8900 block of Fisher Road in Rockwell. Deputies located Harris hiding behind a recliner chair Roehm was sitting in. Roehm was issued a $1,000 secured bond.

Deputies also arrested Joseph Pruss, who allegedly lied to officers about Althoff being inside a residence in the 100 block of Earnhardt Avenue.
