Charlotte Man Found Guilty in Monroe DMV Robbery

From The Charlotte Observer by Steve Lyttle, June 4, 2013

A Charlotte man has become the second person convicted in connection with a November 2010 robbery and shooting at a Monroe DMV office.

The shooting left one victim with injuries that have required a number of surgeries over the past 2 1/2 years.

District Attorney Trey Robison said a jury convicted Melvin Lee Luckey, 35, on two counts each of attempted murder; robbery with a dangerous weapon; conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon; and possession of a firearm by a felon. He also was convicted on one count of larceny of a firearm, Robison said.

Luckey was accused in the Nov. 1, 2010, robbery at the DMV office on East Roosevelt Boulevard (Hwy 74). During that crime, investigators say, DMV employee Crystal Jordan and her husband Robbie were shot.

Robbie Jordan was hospitalized one day with his injuries, but his wife had a lengthy recovery and was still undergoing surgeries earlier this year.

The jury is scheduled to begin deliberating on Luckey’s sentence on Tuesday.

Another Charlotte man, Otis Howie, was convicted last October for his involvement in the robbery and shootings. He was sentenced to between 72 and 90 years in prison.
