By Meghan Cooke / Charlotte Observer of March 10, 2011

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking the public’s help in finding two men wanted on unrelated charges.

Police say Tyrone Patterson, 30, cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet while he was out on bond and awaiting trial for charges related to a January residential burglary.

  •                 Tyrone Patterson, 30

  • Patterson has been on the run, police say, since he cut off the bracelet Thursday evening on Rolling Hill Drive, off Sugar Creek Road.

    Patterson has a lengthy criminal record with 13 arrests in Mecklenburg County and is wanted on outstanding warrants for interfering with an electronic monitoring device, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and felony possession of stolen goods.

    Police say Patterson, who is 5-feet-7 and about 140 pounds, frequents the area around North Tryon Street and Sugar Creek Road.

    Anyone with information on Patterson’s whereabouts is asked to call the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team at 704-336-VACT or call 911.

    Police are also searching for Robert Lee Porter, 24, who is wanted on warrants that include auto theft, larceny from a vehicle and possession of stolen property.

    Porter has been arrested several times in Mecklenburg County. In 2009, he was charged with felony assault by strangulation and communicating threats. Those charges are pending trial, according to court records.

    Anyone with his information about Porter’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
