SALISBURY - Two out of three men suspected of breaking into and ransacking a Dunn's Mountain road home last week have been arrested by the Rowan County Sheriff's Office.
Timothy Lynn Finney and Daniel Wise was arrested on Sunday afternoon. Both are charged with breaking and entering and larceny.
Investigators say in the case of the break in on Dunn's Mountain Road, one of the two men went to the door of the home, ringing the bell and banging on the door. A 14 year old girl who was home at the time hid in the closet after noticing a strange truck in the driveway and a man walking around the back of the house.
One of the men broke into the house and took various items. The girl called a neighbor who drove to the house and noticed the truck in the driveway.
A man in the truck began to loudly rev the engine, prompting the other two men to run from the house and get in the truck. The truck then took off.
Descriptions of the men and a partial description of the truck were released through the media and the men were arrested on Sunday. Both men are being held under $20,000 bond.
The sheriff is expected to release more details about the arrest. In an email message to WBTV, the mother of the girl said "Chalk another one up for our Sheriff Dept. and God!!!
