Police are investigating several break-ins this week, including one in which a Glock 26 handgun was stolen from a home in the St. Alban’s neighborhood. An iPad was stolen from a South Main Street restaurant, and officers responding to a residential burglar alarm on Davidson-Concord Road found someone broke a patio window. Meanwhile, deer continue to be a problem on outlying roads, and stop-and-go traffic on N.C. 73 once again led to numerous rear-end collisions.
Also this week, a local tennis coach was sentenced after pleading guilty to 1 count of indecent liberties with a child and 2 counts of sexual battery. (See related story, “Tennis coach sentenced on sexual assault charges”)
