3 charged in series of Charlotte robberies

Three Charlotte men have been arrested in connection with what the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says is a string of robberies across the city’s east and west sides.

Police say they have linked the trio to eight eastside robberies and three in west or southwest Charlotte.

Investigators identified the suspects as Leevon Kasmirr Haynie, 17; Creon Perkins Jr., 20; and DeMarcus Warren Singleton, 21.

According to police, detectives in the Armed Robbery Unit noticed about 10 days ago that there were several similarities in a number of robberies.

Investigators were able to pinpoint three suspects in the cases, police say.

All three men were taken into custody Thursday, according to CMPD.

Anyone with information about these suspects is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or at http://charlottecrimestoppers.com.
