One Charlotte man has been arrested and another is being sought by authorities in connection with several business burglaries in Rowan County, the sheriff’s office there says.
Carlton Calvin Wilson, 26, was arrested by authorities Wednesday while Wilson was visiting his probation officer in Charlotte, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Still at large is Jeremy Lamont Edwards, 27.
Investigators have linked them to business burglaries in Salisbury, Rockwell and unincorporated areas of Rowan County.
Deputies say they began investigating break-ins at a Napa Auto Parts store on U.S. 52 in Rockwell and the Bostian Heights Market on N.C. 152. They say a sledge hammer was used to get into the store. After Salisbury police recovered a sledge hammer at the scene of a business burglary there, the sheriff’s office joined with Salisbury police in the investigation.
The sheriff’s office says investigators eventually identified Wilson and Edwards as suspects.
Deputies say they have added Edwards to the Rowan Sheriff’s Most Wanted list, and they say he also is being sought by authorities in Mecklenburg County.
