The Huntersville Police Department is investigating six commercial Breaking & Entering and Felony Larceny cases which occurred during the early morning hours on November 27, 2017 in Huntersville, NC.

During an investigation that followed, Huntersville Police learned that the following businesses had been broken into.

  • Subway
  • Little Caesar’s
  • Small Cakes
  • Papa Murphy’s
  • Pinky’s
  • NY Bagel

Officers responding to the crime scene observed a vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed and attempted to catch up to the vehicle. Officers were unable to catch up to the vehicle and lost sight of it in the area of Gilead Road. A short time later, officers responded to the area of Beatties Ford Road and Carrington Pointe Drive for a single vehicle collision. Upon arrival, a witness advised all of the subjects inside the vehicle had run from the scene. A CMPD K9 unit assisted with a track and was unable to locate any of the occupants. Officers observed evidence inside the motor vehicle which appeared to be from the commercial breaking and entering’s.

Huntersville police officers later responded to the area of the Tanners Creek Subdivision for two calls for service involving unknown black males knocking on doors asking for rides to Charlotte, NC. Officers were able to locate both subjects and detain them pending an investigation.

The two subjects detained have been identified and criminal charges are pending as the investigation continues.

Detectives with the Huntersville Police Department are working with detectives from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department, Fort Mill SC Police Department and the York County SC Sheriff’s Department due to crimes of similar nature that occurred in their jurisdictions.

This is an active investigation and anyone with information related to this investigation should contact Lieutenant Andrew Dempski of the Huntersville Police Department at 704-464-5400 or North Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers at 704-896-7867. You can also visit
