Man Released from State Prison is Jailed in Alexander County

37-year-old Ricky James Kilby of Taylorsville was released from state prison on Wednesday and transferred to the Alexander County Detention Center. He’s being held in Alexander County on charges filed in July by the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office that include felony counts of breaking & entering, larceny, and larceny of a motor vehicle, along with first-degree trespassing and probation violations. He is scheduled to appear in District Court on December 18 in Taylorsville.

Kilby was convicted in March for felony possession of a schedule I controlled substance. The sentence was suspended until he was arrested again in July. After serving three months of a five-to-17 month term, he was released Wednesday and handed over to the Sheriff’s Office.

Kilby also has charges pending in Catawba County for felony possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. A court date in Newton was set for February 19.
