Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrest break-in suspect

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have arrested a man in connection with a break-in at a north Charlotte home.

Marc Robert Kirkpatrick, 27, was apprehended Thursday after officers identified him as the man who broke into a house in the 600 block of Emerald Cove Drive.

Police said Kirkpatrick rang the front doorbell of the residence around 9:19 a.m. and then forced his way into the home through the back door.

A woman was home at the time, and Kirkpatrick fled when he heard her voice, police said.

Later officers were able to identify the suspect vehicle and, after a traffic stop and search, find the victim’s stolen property in the car.

Kirkpatrick was in custody at the Mecklenburg County jail Friday on charges of possession of stolen property and driving with a revoked license.

Police said they will file additional charges against him.
