Lewis Edward Fite, 42, was charged in connection with Tuesday’s robbery of a BB&T Bank branch on Mallard Creek Road and Wednesday’s robbery of a First Citizens Bank branch on John J. Delaney Drive, police said.
Armed Robbery Unit detectives stopped a vehicle in which Fite was a passenger, and arrested him on felony larceny warrants from Tennessee, police said. Detectives were assisted by University City Division officers and Gang Unit detectives.
Fite was taken to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Department headquarters, and after being interviewed was charged with two counts of common law robbery and locked up in Mecklenburg County Jail, police said.
