Men Try to Rob Huntersville Police Officers in Broad Daylight

From Charlotte Observer Staff Reports, October 21, 2011 via

Four police officers involved in a drug sting Thursday in Huntersville found themselves as would-be victims of armed robbers instead, according to a WSOC-TV story.

But the police officers turned the tables on the four men, arresting them on a variety of charges, WSOC is reporting.

It happened Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of a restaurant on U.S. 21. Huntersville police say their officers were to buy drugs from a suspect, but four men showed up instead. WSOC says one of the men had a gun and tried to rob two undercover officers.

A team of eight law enforcement officers was nearby, and police quickly rounded up the four men. They were identified as Jeremy Edward Berry, El-Tamon Maurice Greene, Garrett Taylor Robinson, and Tahj Kierre Wilson.
