Charlotte Mecklenburg Police asked for the public’s help Friday in finding a 30-year-old Charlotte man charged for drug-related crimes.

Lavarchio Brenyon Allen is wanted for felony possession of cocaine, felony possession of marijuana and interfering with electronic monitoring device.

Allen was released from jail on June 27 and ordered to wear an electronic monitor as a condition of his release.

But on June 29, police say Allen cut off his monitor and was last seen on I-85 near University City Boulevard.

Allen is the 14th person to cut a CMPD monitor off in 2013, compared with 18 at this point last year. Everyone else who has cut off their monitors has been arrested.

Also on Friday, police arrested another man who tampered with his electronic monitoring device.

Kevin Henderson, 25, was wanted on outstanding warrants for possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a concealed firearm and interfering with an electronic monitoring device.

CMPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team arrested Henderson in the Westover Division on Friday.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Allen should contact CMPD at 704-336-8228(VCAT).
