CMPD Officers Arrest Woman for B&E at T-Mobile Store

University City Division officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have arrested Anita Rochelle Long.

On March 25, 2011, at approximately 1:00 am, Officers were dispatched to a Breaking and Entering call at the T-Mobile store located at 8821 J.W. Clay Blvd. When officers arrived at the location they observed the front door was shattered with what appeared to be a large rock. Management advised officers that several laptops and electronic tablets appeared to be missing.

A witness stated they heard the store alarm activate and observed a dark colored minivan speed off from the location. Officers located a vehicle matching the description in a cul-de-sac on Doug Mayes Place and observed several laptops and electronic tablets inside of vehicle.

Anita Rochelle Long was detained and confessed to the crime. Long has been charged with Breaking and Entering with Force, Conspiracy and Larceny.

If it had not been for an alert witness willing to get involved, this subject may still be free to victimize another person in our community. Kudos to the reporting citizen!!
