CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A robbery suspect is in jail after a T-shirt with his photo on it was found outside a home police say he robbed last week.

On March 29, two men broke into a residence on Dinglewood Avenue, off Eastway Drive, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. A man and woman were home at the time, according to a police report, and the suspects moved them from room to room as they stole a wallet and jewelry.

As the suspects fled, police said, the man who lives at the home ran outside after them. During a struggle, a T-shirt fell out of the suspects’ vehicle.

The black T-shirt showed a photo – apparently a mug shot – of a young man and read “Making money is my thang.”

The victim realized the photo was of the man who had just robbed him, police said.

Two days later, Jonathan Tyrone Huntley 25, of Charlotte, turned himself in and spoke with detectives, police said. After the interview, he was charged with common law robbery and breaking and entering, both felonies. He was later charged with a parole violation.

Huntley, a convicted felon, was released from prison in November 2010, according to the N.C. Department of Correction. His previous convictions include robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering.

Police are still searching for the other suspect in the robbery.
