Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: on 01/23/2016, Sgt. A. Blackburn and Deputy P. Dixson were dispatched to 156 Leslie Loop in reference to Breaking and Entering in progress. Upon their arrival they were informed by the victim that the suspect, Mr. Aaron John Goble, was found sleeping in the residence.
When Mr. Goble saw the homeowner was home he ran out the back door of the residence. Deputies followed the footprints in the snow which lead over train tracks, through woods, multiple parking lots, and eventually led to Lake Norman Regional Medical Center.
Mr. Goble was found in the walk way of the hospital smoking a cigarette. Mr. Goble attempted to flee on foot, but was quickly apprehended. Mr. Goble was arrested and taken to the Iredell County Detention Center where he was charged with 2nd Degree Trespassing and Misdemeanor Breaking or Entering with a $5,000 secured bond.
