CMPD University City Division Officers Arrest Residential Burglary Suspects

From, April 23, 2012

The CMPD Public Information Office says that University City Division officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have arrested Juan Antonio Brown, DOB: 11/15/1960, and Mark Antonio Steele, DOB: 01/10/1986, for their involvement in a recent residential breaking and entering incident.
On Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at approximately 12:30 a.m. an alert neighbor called 9-11 stating he observed the suspects enter a vacant house in the 800 block of Reigate Road, remove appliances from the house, and place the items in a trailer before leaving the location.  The neighbor gave the tele-communicator a detailed description of the suspects and vehicle they were occupying.
A short time later, officers observed a vehicle matching the description and conducted a vehicle stop on Kempsford Drive.  The suspects were detained and positively identified by the witness as the men involved in the incident.  More than $2,500 in stolen household appliances were recovered and both suspects were taken into custody.  The suspects have been charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and felony possession of stolen goods.
These arrests illustrate how critical it is for the community and police to work together.  Had it not been for this engaged neighbor who called 9-11, these two property thieves would likely still be in our community free to victimize others.  Anyone with additional information concerning this case or these suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704.334.1600.
