Burglaries keep deputies on the go
SoVaNow.com / July 02, 2014Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s deputies were kept busy over the weekend investigating burglaries throughout the county as well as three separate traffic incidents.
On June 27, Sgt. M. Alexander arrested two motorcyclists from Charlotte, N.C, charging them with reckless driving and felony eluding. According to Alexander’s report, Chris London, 35, and Anthony Lamar Andrews, 31 were travelling 93 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-85 near South Hill.
After registering their speed on his radar, Alexander activated his lights and siren, notifying the two to pull over. Instead, they accelerated, with Alexander in pursuit.
