An article in the February 19th 2016 RFP: “Jaylon Armon Wimbley Arrested Allegedly for a House Break-in and Stealing TVs in Salisbury, N.C.. Nailed on Facebook”:

“In Salisbury, N.C. where house break-ins are all too common and where violent crime is allegedly underreported, Jaylon Armon Wimbley, 17, of Best Street was arrested Thursday for a house break-in at 1523 North Main back on February 11th where 3 TVs, jewelry , and assorted items were reported stolen.

Salisbury Police were tipped off about the alleged thief by Kamya Kesler who also informed investigators that her ripped off items were for sale on a popular Facebook page where various goods were listed for sale.  The police soon discovered several of Kesler’s “missing” items were being sold there.  The investigation continued and warrants were written up.  Wimbley was in the crosshairs of the SPD.

Wimbley was charged with breaking and entering-building (felony) and with larceny after breaking and entering (felony).  Under a secured $10,000 bond, Wimbley was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center.”
