SALISBURY — Two High Point teens face multiple felony charges after they were caught breaking into vehicles in a Salisbury neighborhood. The two face other charges from other law enforcement agencies.

Jamil Tyshawn Ray, 18, was charged Tuesday with felony fleeing to elude arrest. He is currently being processed and faces charges that include breaking and entering and possession of stolen items, according to Salisbury Police Department spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

A 14-year-old was also involved in the thefts.

There were 17 cars broken into sometime around 4 a.m. on Chantilly Lane, located off Old Concord Road. A man who lived on Chantilly Lane saw the teens leaving in a Ford Fusion. The man jumped into his pickup and followed them, Walker said.

The man told police he heard gunshots coming from the vehicle so he pulled out his gun and fired back, striking the Ford.

It’s not clear how the two were apprehended, but they were arrested at the Sheetz gas station, 1520 S. Jake Alexander Blvd. Some of the stolen items were recovered, Walker said.

Walker said the same Ford Fusion was involved in a chase with N.C. State Highway Patrol. The incident also involved the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. No other details were immediately available.
