Repeat Felon Wearing Electronic Monitoring Device Charged With Another Armed Robbery

Woman Robbed at Gun-Point When She Went to Look at Car Advertised For Sale

The Charlotte Observer reported, in an article by Steve Lyttle, on Wednesday, January 26, 2011, that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a man already wearing an electronic monitoring device after an armed robbery arrest last March has been arrested in connection with two more cases on back-to-back days this month.

Catrell Holloway, 21, is among three people charged in connection with a Jan. 18 robbery in the 1300 block of Wembley Drive in police’s Eastway Division. Investigators say Holloway faces additional charges in connection with an incident Jan. 17, in which he allegedly pointed a gun at a woman on Kentbrook Drive in east Charlotte.

Police say Holloway had been put on electronic monitoring after being charged in a March 11 armed robbery on Shamrock Drive.

The Jan. 18 incident happened when a woman arrived at a location on Wembley Drive to buy a car, police say. The woman told investigators that when she arrived, she was approached by three people, one of whom asked to borrow her cell phone.

The woman said when the man got close enough, he grabbed her purse. Another man told the woman he had a gun and advised her to let go of the purse. The three people ran off toward Central Avenue, the woman said.

Investigators said they checked the electronic monitoring records to see if anyone wearing a device was in the Wembley Drive area at the time. The victim identified three suspects as being involved in the robbery, according to police.

Charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery were Holloway; Gadarrius Murphy, 21; and Porschia Jordan, 19.
