Rowan County authorities arrest 2 from ‘Most Wanted’ list

Two men from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office’s “Most Wanted” list have been arrested in the past 24 hours, officials said Friday.

Aziz Alim Rahim Al-Amin, who has been on the list since April, was arrested Thursday, the Sheriff’s Office said. He was wanted in connection with eight residential and commercial break-ins, as well as a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Al-Amin was arrested at a home in Thomasville by Davidson County authorities and returned to the Rowan County Detention Center under a $100,000 secured bond, officials said.

Matthew Damion Parham, 22, was arrested early Friday on charges of failure to notify authorities about an address change by a registered sex offender and interfering with an electronic monitoring device, the Sheriff’s Office said.

In mid-July, Parham cut off his probation monitoring ankle bracelet and left his home, officials said. He is in custody at the Rowan County Detention Center under a $380,000 secured bond.
