ROBBERY SPREE LEADS TO POLICE CHASE AND BAD WRECK
This busted drugged out version of Bonnie and Clyde crashed out during a robbery spree, only to end up with a neck brace and a few free nights in the county jail.
Timothy Whiteside, 46, and Veronica Crawford, 42, were both arrested for their involvement in a series of robberies that occurred this week in Charlotte, NC.
On Tuesday, November 06, 2018, the duo robbed a woman at gun-point on S. College Street. Later that night at 8:59 p.m., the suspects approached a woman on Central Avenue and brandished a weapon while taking the victim's purse and cell phone.
Nearly an hour later at 9:58 p.m., on Commonwealth Avenue the suspects robbed a male victim at gun-point while he was sitting in his vehicle in a parking lot.
And just 30 minutes later on East Boulevard the crooks struck again, this time robbing a woman at gun-point and stealing her vehicle. The vehicle was recovered unoccupied shortly thereafter.
During the investigation, Armed Robbery Detectives gathered information that helped them identify the suspect vehicle. Detectives broadcasted that vehicle information to all divisions. On Wednesday at 12:11 a.m., cops spotted the vehicle on Justice Avenue.
Officers approached the vehicle at which time the vehicle took off and officers pursued the vehicle. After a short vehicle pursuit the suspects were taken into custody after they collided with an innocent bystander's vehicle.
Drug paraphernalia was found in the suspect vehicle.
