Fast work by local officers resulted in the quick apprehension of suspects in a breaking, entering, and larceny in Taylorsville this past week.

On Thursday, June 22, 2017, at approximately 6:00 PM, Alexander County 911 was notified of a possible Breaking & Entering located on Payne’s Dairy Road in Taylorsville. A witness called 911 and gave a description of a white vehicle that was seen occupied by two men and a woman who were using a pry tool to gain entry to the residence. The witness saw the individuals bringing out a television and a safe out of the residence and a string trimmer out of an outbuilding. Officers responded to the residence, located on Payne’s Dairy Road, according to Sheriff Chris Bowman.

En route to the residence, officers spotted a white Toyota vehicle on Old Landfill Road. Officers stopped that vehicle near Custom Framecrafters, on Hwy. 16 South in Taylorsville. The occupants of the vehicle were confronted, one man and one woman. A second man was inside a residence hiding. Officers made entry to the residence and found an open window that the man had gone out.
This suspect was located a short time later behind People’s Drug Store in Taylorsville, hiding in the bushes.
