$5,000 Reward offered in armed robbery cases


The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying two people involved in the armed robbery of two local gas stations, and Crimestoppers is offering a reward.

On Saturday, March 23, just after 3:30 a.m., two men went into the Kangaroo Express on Charlottetowne Avenue and robbed the business at gunpoint.

The first man was described as a white male, approximately 5' 6" to 5" 9" tall, 20 to 30 years old, and a slim build. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black sneakers, and a black ski mask. 

The second man was a white male, approximately 5'5" to 5'6" tall, medium build, and in his late 20's to early 30's. He was wearing a brown ski mask and brown jacket.

Then, on Tuesday, March 26, just before 11:30 p.m., a man robbed the Kangaroo Express on Harris Station, in the University area, at gunpoint. The man in this robbery is potentially the first man listed in the March 23 incident.

Crimestoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of either men involved in the robberies.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (704)334-1600, or visit http://charlottecrimestoppers.com.
