A man was arrested Wednesday after police say he led them on a car chase from a home burglary in Charlotte, up U.S. 29 and into Concord.

Andre Deleon Glover, 19, is charged with breaking into an occupied house just before 8 a.m. on Dashiel Drive in northeast Charlotte. One of the residents called police to say a man had broken in through the front door.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrived to find a man driving away in a dark green Toyota Camry. Officers attempted to stop the car, which sped north on U.S. 29.

The six-minute chase averaged 85 miles per hour, police said.

Concord police were waiting across the Cabarrus County line. They punctured the car’s tires with a spike strip, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Glover.

He is charged with breaking and entering, larceny, possession of stolen goods, fleeing to elude arrest and reckless driving.

Glover has been arrested a half-dozen times since 2007. Court records show he’s been convicted of conspiracy to sell cocaine, speeding to elude arrest, possessing a stolen vehicle and felony hit-and-run.

He was released from an N.C. prison May 19 after serving about six months for breaking and entering and larceny convictions.
