CMPD: Man caught after cutting off monitoring device

Lavarchio Allen has joined the group of Mecklenburg County residents who cut off their electronic monitoring devices but were caught quickly by police.

Allen, 30, had cut off his device June 29, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. That was two days after he was released from jail and ordered to wear the monitoring mechanism.

Allen was last seen in University City but was caught by police Monday in the Steele Creek area of southwest Charlotte. He was sought on warrants for felony possession of cocaine, felony possession of marijuana, and interfering with an electronic monitoring device.

Allen is the 14th person to cut off the device so far this year. All were recaptured by police.
