Alexander Co. Sheriff's Officers are searching for a suspicious male following a residential break-in this morning (August 21). Officers were looking for the man in the area of the 1,200-to-1,400 blocks of N.C. Highway 127, near Stafford Mountain Road. The search was scaled back after multiple K-9 tracking attempts turned up no new leads.
The man was seen in the area at about 9 a.m. today. He was wearing camouflage pants, a green checkered flannel shirt, a green bandanna, and a ballcap. He may have been carrying a long gun.
Anyone with information should call Alexander County Communications at 828-632-2911 or call 9-1-1.
