We are happy to announce the arrest of two suspects in today’s earlier Armed Robbery at 10416 E. Independence Blvd. Matthews’ detectives were able to further their investigation this afternoon and receive information that placed the stolen vehicle in the Salisbury, NC area. After this information developed, we contacted the Salisbury Police Department who was extremely helpful and willing to assist in any way they could to apprehend the suspects. Two suspects were located in the stolen vehicle a short time later and arrested by Salisbury PD Officers on a traffic stop. They are currently being held in the Rowan County Jail for possession of stolen property, with additional charges pending.
And to answer the question that is on everyone’s mind, YES, the boxer is safe and unharmed. He was reunited with family, and will most surely get a lot of extra love and treats tonight.
We are very appreciative to all for the many social media shares and views we received to get this information out quickly. Our relationship with our citizens, business owners as well as surrounding law enforcement agencies is invaluable, as we can only be successful as a team.
