43-year-old David Brian Brown and 53-year-old Jessica S. Roten of North Wilkesboro have been identified as the suspects charged in connection to a series of vehicle break-ins that were discovered at various hotels and other locations in the City of Hickory Sunday morning (June 1).
An online service was used to track some of the stolen items to a location in Wilkes County. When Wilkes County Deputies went to the address to investigate, they found an assortment of stolen items from Hickory and other jurisdictions, as well as a meth lab.
Both suspects have been charged with multiple counts of breaking & entering motor vehicles and larceny. Additional charges are pending.
Brown and Roten will appear in a Wilkes County courtroom on the meth charges on July 16.
