The Rowan County Sheriffs Office has charged three people with multiple break-ins and thefts from a business near Salisbury, officials said.
Diamond Auto Sales on Mooresville Road had vehicle parts and accessories stolen from its storage facility on several occasions, deputies said.
During the investigation, officials said they gathered enough information to develop possible suspects.
Information was presented to a magistrate and investigators said they obtained 18 warrants for each of the three suspects, for a total of 54 charges.
Neil Wayne Hooper was brought from Cabarrus County Jail, where officials said he was awaiting sentencing for the armed robbery of a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Kannapolis.
James Franklin Moore was also brought from Cabarrus County Jail and deputies said they took Chantile Dawn Eller into custody Friday.
Each was charged with multiple counts of felony breaking entering of a building, obtaining property by false pretenses and breaking entering a motor vehicle, among others, according to the sheriffs office.
All three were placed in the Rowan County Detention Center: Hooper and Moore were each placed under $25,000 bond, Eller under a $10,000 bond.
