If He's Committing More Crimes...

while wearing a court-ordered monitoring ankle bracelet, he's probably better off in jail:

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have made an arrest in the alleged armed robbery of a woman who was confronted by two men in the garage of her north Charlotte home last week.

The robbery was reported Sept. 17 at the 6500 block of Quarterbridge Lane. That is in a neighborhood off Rumple Lane, east of Sugar Creek Road, in the Derita community.

Police say as a woman came home and pulled her vehicle into her garage, she was confronted by two men, one armed with a handgun. They demanded her money and then took her phone and other items from the vehicle before fleeing.

A CMPD officer later spotted a man who fit the description of the robbers. Police say that as the officer approached, the man threw down a plastic bag containing marijuana. Officers say a search of the man turned up items that belonged to the woman. They say the man, identified as [suspect], was wearing an electronic monitoring device that placed him at the scene of the robbery.
