Freedom Division Patrol Officers have arrested and charged Robert Alexander, DOB: 05/10/1988, and Tajarvis Wall, DOB: 01/21/1990, for their involvement in a residential burglary case that occurred in the 6300 block of Summerour Place.
On Tuesday, November 19, 2013, at approximately 6:29 p.m., Freedom Division Patrol Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 6300 block of Summerour Place in reference to a residential burglary call for service. The witness stated that he observed two suspects break into the residence through the back door and so he called 911. The victim was upstairs and unaware that the two suspects had entered his home. The victim heard a noise and came downstairs and confronted the suspects inside his residence. Once the suspects realized that the victim was home they fled the residence and the victim called 911. The 911 operators were able to get a description of the suspects and suspect vehicle from both the victim and witness and broadcasted that information to responding officers.
As the first officer arrived on scene, he observed the suspects jump from the vehicle and chased the suspects on foot. A perimeter was quickly established by responding officers and both suspects were located and arrested nearby. The victim and witness positively identified both suspects and they were transported to the Freedom Division office where they were interviewed by detectives.
Upon further investigation, it was determined that the vehicle used by the suspects was stolen on November 19, 2013 from the Independence Division. Crime Scene Search responded to the call for service to process the scene and collect physical evidence.
After speaking with detectives, both suspects were charged with 1st degree burglary, conspiracy to commit 1st degree burglary, larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle and resist, obstruct and delay. They were then transported to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone with additional information concerning this case or the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. To learn more about the Crime Stoppers mobile app, please visit http://charlottecrimestoppers.com/.
