Andre Jones, 35, robbed the La Unica Supermarket on South Boulevard in Charlotte, NC in December 2018.
On January 16, 2020 Andre pled guilty to robbery with a dangerous weapon and being a habitual felon.
Andre was sentenced to 130-168 months in prison.
One evening in December 2018, an employee of La Unica Supermarket was working at the cash register when Andre, wearing a face mask, approached her with a knife and demanded that she open her cash register. Andre took $745 and two money orders from the cash register before leaving the store.
Another employee followed Andre and saw him remove his face mask after the robbery. That employee was able to see the suspect's face and provided police with a physical description.
Based on that information, officers were able to quickly locate Andre. Once detained, officers found La Unica’s $745 and money orders in the bag Andre carried.
