Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Hickory Grove Division have arrested and charged Andre Maynor, DOB: 06/25/1996, for his involvement in this case.
On Wednesday, April 20, 2016, at approximately 8:15 a.m., Hickory Grove Division patrol officers responded to the area of Bradstreet Commons Way and Rothman Lane regarding a suspicious vehicle call for service. The caller thought that a vehicle was casing the area looking for vehicles to break into. While officers were circulating the area, a victim flagged down one of the officers in the 10000 block of Robinson Church Road in reference to a stolen vehicle. The victim told the officer that he left his vehicle running and unattended while he went into the convenience store and there was a firearm inside the vehicle. When the victim came outside his 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee had been stolen from the parking lot. The officer broadcast a description of the stolen Jeep and a short time later, officers located the occupied Jeep on E. WT Harris Boulevard and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was arrested and identified as Andre Maynor. Officers recovered the victim’s firearm inside the vehicle.
Maynor was transported to the Hickory Grove Division team office where he was interviewed by detectives. Upon completion of the interview, Maynor was charged with Larceny of a Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Larceny of a Firearm, Possession of a Stolen Firearm, No Operators License, and Possession of Marijuana and transferred to the custody of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.
