LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Kings Mountain man has been arrested after a resident on Reepsville Road, Lincolnton observed suspicious activity involving a vehicle.

Deputy B. Alexander was dispatched to a suspicious vehicle call around 10:45 a.m. on October 19, 2020 involving a vehicle parked on Jetton Drive. The officer was told that a male subject got out of the vehicle, came into her yard and looked through an outbuilding and her husband’s truck before returning to the suspicious vehicle, a Hyundai Sonata.

The vehicle which had lost its tire traveled on a wheel rim for the entire length of Jetton Drive. The Lincoln County Communications Center checked the license plate on the vehicle which came back as stolen out of Southern Pines. Deputy Alexander located a white male near the passenger side of the vehicle who said the vehicle had a flat tire and he was trying to change it. The man was holding a tire iron as he spoke with the officer.

Detective D. Snellings arrived on the scene and assisted in placing the man, identified as Joey Lee Detter, 39, of Fulton Street, Kings Mountain, NC in custody. Detter was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and driving while license revoked. He also had outstanding warrants out of Cleveland, Gaston and Moore Counties for larceny of a motor vehicle, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and four counts of driving while license revoked.

Detter was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $92,500 secured bond.
