Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say they’ve charged a Charlotte teenager with stealing a pair of Nike Air Jordan sneakers last month.

He was arrested Tuesday and taken to CMPD’s Westover Division for questioning. He was charged with larceny from person.

Police ask that anyone with information about this incident or Boyd call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
