SALISBURY — A China Grove man was arrested on Tuesday for breaking and entering and multiple drug charges, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

Dustin Blake Sloop, 32, is facing four misdemeanor charges for breaking and entering a building, injury to real property, simple possession of Schedule IV controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, once Sloop was confined at the Rowan County Detention Center, he received an additional charge of felony possession of a Schedule II controlled substance once it was discovered after a search that he had heroin opium derivatives on him.

The arrest for breaking and entering occurred at the 600 block of Old Linn Road in China Grove around 8 p.m. Tuesday night.

In other sheriff’s office reports:

  • A China Grove man was cited on Tuesday for possession of marijuana and a U.S. currency charge after police witnessed a silver BMW swerving in and out of traffic with no turn signals on I-85. When stopped, the man handed over a license with the identity of Malcolm Faulkner, according to the sheriff’s office. An officer from the sheriff’s office found two bundles of cash on the man, which amounted to $3,100 and indicated potential criminal activity.

In police reports:

  • Najee Terez Reid, 32, of Salisbury was arrested for an outstanding warrant for a felony charge of possession with intent to manufacture/sell/distribute a Schedule II controlled substance.
