A Maiden man has been convicted of several felonies after a GPS led authorities to a stolen iPhone and a meth lab, the Catawba County District Attorney’s Office said Monday.
Bryan Keith Harris, 35, was convicted of possessing/distributing a methamphetamine precursor, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of larceny, possession of stolen goods and possession of a stolen firearm -- all felonies, prosecutors said.
Harris was sentenced to a minimum of 8 years and a maximum of 14 1/2 years in prison.
The crimes occurred in February 2013 in the city of Maiden and involved the breaking and entering and larceny of more than $10,000 in property from two residences, according to prosecutors.
One of the items stolen was an iPhone. Investigators with the Maiden Police Department used the GPS function to find the phone and other stolen items. They also found remnants of a meth lab, prosecutors said.
