SHELBY, N.C. -- Attempted breaking-and-entering suspects startled a Shelby homeowner Friday. Police say one of them tried to kick in his doors and gain access to the house.

Officers responded to the residence in the 100 block of Cabaniss Farm Drive Friday afternoon.

The homeowner told police someone rang his doorbell. He then noticed two men standing near a red vehicle and gold vehicle outside of the house.

It was then he heard another suspect kicking at his door. That man fled on foot when the victim opened the door. The other men drove from the scene in the red car, and a woman was seen fleeing in the gold vehicle.

Deputies found the red vehicle a few miles away from the home. Police also used a K-9 to track the suspect who fled on foot, who was found in a nearby creek.

Police arrested the woman, a Gardner Webb University student, on the campus.

The suspects have been identified asRashad Levels, Jonathan Ford, Amber Yow and Arlando Griffin.

All four suspects were charged with conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, attempted breaking and entering, and possession of burglary tools. They are being held in the Cleveland County Detention Center under a $500,000.00 bond.
