• Burglar tries to hide from police, digs a hole


    SHELBY, N.C. - Neighbors said one of the suspects in a Shelby home burglary tried to hide from police by finding a nearby creek and digging a hole to hide in.

    But that effort to find a hiding spot did not work.

    Police arrested Jonathan Ford, Arlando Griffin, Rashad Levels and Gardner-Webb University student Amber Yow.

    Police said all were involved in a break-in on Cabaniss Farm Drive but it was Levels who tried to kick in the back door.

    Police said Levels ran away when he spotted a homeowner inside.

    A police dog found Levels hiding in a hole he dug along a creek bank.

    The hole collapsed on him and he was bitten by the dog.

    Police caught up to the other three in a car several miles away.
