From The Charlotte Observer by Steve Lyttle, July 1, 2013

Five teens face a variety of charges in connection with several armed robberies and a home invasion, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Detectives say the break-through came after an alleged home invasion early Sunday afternoon in East Charlotte.

Police say the incident was reported shortly before 12:45 p.m. at a residence in the 3500 block of Burner Drive, off Central Avenue near Sharon Amity Road. The residents told police they were robbed of their phones and money by several people who fled in a gray vehicle.

Police spokeswoman Officer Jessica Lawrence said investigators received an “excellent description of suspects and the suspect vehicle,” and officers were able to find the vehicle a short time later in the 4800 block of Central Avenue.

Five people were taken into custody, and police said information they got during interviews with the five led them to believe the suspects were involved in additional robberies.

Three of the teens were each charged with six counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon; two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery; and one count of felony breaking-and-entering. They were identified by police as Jamie Taylor, 18; Rashaun Henderson, 19; and Sharica Gurley, who turned 18 on the day of the alleged home invasion.

Two others were charged with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon; one count of conspiracy to commit robbery; and one count of felony breaking-and-entering. They were identified as Trent Johnson, 19; and Jocqui Johnson, 18.

Anyone with additional information about the case or the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
