Man arrested for Radio Shack break-in

September 23, 2010

Conover Police arrested a man in connection with an electronics store break-in.
Caskell Cook, 31, of Conover, is accused of stealing more than $2,200 worth of laptops from Radio Shack, located at 432 Conover Blvd. West, according to Shane Moore, of the Conover Police Department.
The break-in occurred about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, and Cook allegedly used a brick or a blunt object to break open the store window.
He removed four laptop computers from the store and left the scene. Police were notified of the break-in, and they interviewed witnesses in the shopping center parking lot who saw a dark-colored convertible leaving the scene, Moore said.
Officers put out an announcement to locate on vehicles matching the description. A Catawba County sheriff's deputy recognized the vehicle and knew where it was usually located.
Police arrived at Cook's residence off Cessna Lane within an hour of the incident, and Cook was at home. He confessed that he was responsible for the crime, and officers recovered the stolen laptops, Moore said.
Cook is out of jail on bond.
