Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested two men accused of being connected with a string of home invasions and burglaries dating backto 2013.
CMPD identified the suspects as Devonta Stanley, 22, and Dionta Inman, 24.
Police identified the two men on Dec. 1 when an officer saw a suspicious car parked at a house in the 1800 block of Wedgedale Drive in south Charlotte. One of the suspects was standing beside the house; the other was in the car.
When the suspects saw the officer, the one who was outside the car hurried back and two pulled away. The officer followed, and, according to a CMPD spokesman, the suspects made “numerous incorrect turns” as they tried to leave the neighborhood.
After police stopped the car, the driver was arrested for having no license. Police also found a nearby house that had been broken into. A TV from that home was found inside the suspects’ car, according to CMPD. They also found three handguns and additional stolen items.
A receipt inside the car led officers to a storage facility, where they found other stolen property. Additional stolen items were found inside a car that belonged to one of the suspects.
The men were charged with numerous counts, including breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen firearms, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a felon, and carrying a concealed weapon.
