CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A man was charged in connection to multiple breaking and enterings in south Charlotte Wednesday.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers responded to the 4300 block of Castleton Road Monday morning in reference to a suspicious person. The caller said he heard a loud noise outside of his home and observed a person checking door handles to cars parked in his driveway, a release from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department stated.
Officers say upon their arrival they located the suspect near the victim’s home and detained him. Officers reviewed video footage and confirmed he matched the description of the person seen in the video.
Demarco Threatt was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted breaking and entering of a motor vehicle. Officers say they searched his book bag and located a check, gift cards, loose change, a $100 bill gold plate and counterfeit money.
