CMPD Arrests Frankenstein Robber

Eric Christopher Orr
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have charged 28 year-old Eric Christopher Orr with armed robbery and attempted armed robbery. The charges are in connection with an overnight crime spree in which four Charlotte convenience stores were robbed by a man wearing a Frankenstein mask.

Orr was arrested Saturday for stealing a vehicle that was related to a case of breaking and entering. As police officers were interrogating Orr about the charges, they realized that he matched the description of the suspect who robbed the four stores on September 13.

After realizing that Orr matched this description, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police charged him in connection with the September 13 robberies, as well as other robberies they believe Orr is responsible for.
