An Asheboro man was arrested Sunday, July 6, in connection with a home invasion on Columbus Lane in Thomasville.

Michael Brian Allmon, 43, of the 2600 block of Hopewell Friends Road, is charged with first-degree burglary after he allegedly broke into the residence with a shotgun. According to a press release from the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded, where they found the homeowner  – whose identity was not immediately available – and Allmon’s wife.

The release reports the homeowner was in bed with a female when the female’s husband gained entry into the residence with a shotgun, holding the two at gunpoint.

The homeowner said Allmon eventually departed his residence after firing a round inside the residence and another two rounds in the driveway, shooting out the tires of his wife’s vehicle. No one was harmed.

In addition to the first-degree burglary charge, Allmon faces charges for discharging a firearm inside an enclosure to incite fear, false imprisonment, assault by pointing a gun and injury to personal property.

Allmon was placed in Davidson County Jail under a $100,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 15.
