Man claims mom gave him aluminum, deputy doesn't buy that story | Crime
SALISBURY - His first mistake may have been blowing by a deputy at high speed, but several other mistakes led to Jordan Delpiano being placed in jail.
Deputies say on Wednesday morning, Delpiano was driving his Jeep Cherokee at a high rate of speed when he passed the intersection of Stafford Estates and Old Concord Road.
The deputy began following the Jeep on Old Concord Road. He noticed that the Jeep was pulling a trailer that didn't have any lights or a registration plate.
It was also packed full of aluminum pallets and beams worth approximately $10,000.
Deputy T. W. Zimmerman stopped the Jeep and found Jordan Delpiano behind the wheel.
When asked where he got the aluminum, Delpiano told the deputy that he got it from his mother, and was headed to the lake.
Wanting to confirm the story, Zimmerman asked Delpiano for his mother's phone number and name. When Zimmerman called the number, a woman said she was indeed Delpiano's mother and that she had given her son the aluminum. When Zimmerman asked the woman to give him her son's date of birth, the line suddenly went dead. Delpiano then admitted that the number belonged to his girlfriend, not his mother.
Delpiano then admitted much more, telling the deputy that he had pulled into a field beside the Rowan Vocational Opportunities location on Glover Road and loaded up the aluminum onto his trailer.
Delpiano was charged with felony larceny, along with careless and reckless driving, and resisting an officer. Delpiano's bond is set at $5000.
