Theft & Property Crimes Archives

2 suspects videoed but not identified in Mint Hill robbery

Earlier this month, an armed robbery reportedly took place in the middle of the day in a busy shopping center. The owner of a Charlotte-area jewelry store told police that he was caught off guard when two men entered his store, held a gun to his face and demanded that he give them cash. He also claims that he was beaten during the alleged robbery, which has caused concern in the area about an increase in both property crime and crimes involving violence.

Charlotte jewelry store robbery caught on tape

There is no denying that sometimes police investigators gather serious evidence against accused individuals. While not always indicative of guilt, surveillance video can be one particularly effective tool for prosecutors in their efforts to obtain a conviction. But because these videos are often shot from odd angles and have a blurred or grainy quality, they can present problems for correctly identifying a person who may have committed a crime.

Soldier in North Carolina charged with gun store break-in

In North Carolina, theft crime charges are serious business, no matter who you are. A 28-year-old Army soldier is likely realizing this after being accused of breaking into a gun shop. The 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper is now charged with stealing property valued at tens of thousands of dollars.

Felony charges for 2 men following Charlotte car burglaries

Being charged with a crime is no jewel. However, all is not lost simply because accusations have been made. While felony charges could indeed carry significant penalties -- for instance, jail time, probation, community service and fines -- a person who has been charged with a crime should never lose hope. This remains true for two young men from Charlotte who are facing several felony charges in connection with recent incidents that may or may not involve them.

The total value of the items involved in the alleged theft crime amount to more than $1 million.
