ROCKWELL, N.C. (WBTV) - Rockwell Police and the Rowan Sheriff’s Office have charged a man with a series of vehicle break-ins in the area of Palmer Road. The investigation, ongoing since March 10, resulted in charges brought by both agencies.

Theodore Christopher Sherman, II, 28, of Rockwell was charged by Rockwell Police with five counts of misdemeanor larceny, six counts of felony breaking and entering, and two counts of obtaining property by false pretenses. The Rowan Sheriff’s Office charged Sherman with one count felony vehicle break-in and one count of felony larceny after breaking and entering.

According to the report, a homeowner caught Sherman breaking into his truck on the morning of March 10.
