A man found guilty last month of breaking into Catawba County vehicles has also been arrested on seven felony charges for similar crimes that took place in Lincoln County.
Deputies have charged Alexander Scott Haymaker, 19, of 3681 Chevlot Hills Road in Sherrills Ford, with breaking into vehicles and outbuildings along Burnhurst Lane and Sandal Creek Lane in Denver in October, stealing electronics and a firearm, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Catawba County authorities have located part of the stolen property just north of Denver, in an area along Helen’s Way, and returned the items to owners, the Sheriff’s Office said.
In addition to misdemeanor larceny, he faces a number of felony charges including three counts of breaking and entering a vehicle, two counts of breaking and entering a building and one count each of larceny after breaking and entering and larceny of a firearm.
According to the North Carolina Department of Correction website, Haymaker was convicted May 15 of breaking and entering vehicles in Catawba County. Three months earlier, a judge found him guilty of resisting an officer.
He remains in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $13,500 secured bond.
