ALEXANDER COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Three people were arrested in connection with breaking into a home in Taylorsville last week.
According to the Alexander County Sheriff's Office, a witness called 911 saying two men and a woman were using a pry tool to gain entry to a home on Payne's Dairy Road around 6 p.m. June 22.
The witness told 911 they saw the three people steal a TV, safe and a weed eater from the property. While heading to the scene, deputies said they saw a white Toyota vehicle on Old Landfill Road.
The sheriff's office said they stopped the vehicle near Custom Framecrafters on Highway 16 South in Taylorsville and found a man and a woman inside. A second man allegedly involved in the incident was hiding inside a nearby home, deputies said.
